Do you know about this piece of aviation history sitting in a hangar on Airport Drive?

Stop in next time you are picking up friends or family from the International Terminal.

Minh Nguyen so that’s what’s in there 😂

Saw it very close-up when I was a child in the 1950's at Centennial Park, Fortitude Valley.

I don't know if you can see the building from the road now.......

It is there but unless you know where to look you can miss it. Hopefully when they develop the "new" terminal they will make it a centre piece so that people can really see it. Unfortunately I doubt if they will as the people who make the decisions have little imagination and even less sense of history.
