There is so much in their displays, and I'm always amazed at how I notice stuff I never saw before, or at least took notice of. Here are some really interesting pieces of NZ's pioneering aviation days that I did notice this time around:An engine and propellor from one of the Walsh brothers flying boats! I wonder how much else from this/these aircraft remains todayThe propellor hub from one of the Gloster Grebes that Sir Henry Wigram donated to the NZPAF. Again, I wonder if anything else exists of these aircraft, and how this survived.And here are some interesting items relating to Sir Charles Kingsford Smith's visit to Wigram in 1928 - first his helmet and the article blown upAnd the Silver Fern badge he was presented with, which was lost almost immediately due to the huge crowd jostling himNot the greatest of photos I'll admit, due to the glass reflecting, but interesting stories I think.
