KLM Uiver Replica

In my new hometown of Albury, NSW, Australia this aircraft - the oldest DC2 in the world - a replica to the KLM Uiver that crash landed in the town in 1934 whilst competing in the London-Melbourne Air Race.

 

Read the remarkable story here - I've lived here for only a year and the story sends chills down my spine.

 

Unfortunately this plane is up for sale and will likely move away from it's resting ground at the Albury Airport due to incredibly expensive housing costs. I had to get this shot before it goes and the night I received my 5D Mark III, I did just that!
