Painting by Ken Jennings
Sir Reginald Ansett Transport Museum
The Sir Reginald Ansett Trasnsprot Museum is based on the Ansett company's first aircraft hanger.
Centrepiece of the display is a Fokker Universal aircraft, similar to the one used on the first Ansett flight in 1936.
Other memorablilia include documents from the early days of the Ansett empire. Of particular interest is the first prospectus which sets out the capital required and proposed development of the company.
Other items, like the wheel from a Boeing 727, graphically illustrate the rapid advances in aviation.
The museum also has a complete set of flight attendant uniforms and an array of smaller items to keep the nostalgia buffs busy for quite some time.
