'Bring Our Birds Home' is a campaign to save and recover 5 significant New Zealand air frames of historical and cultural importance.
'Bring Our Birds Home' is a campaign to save and recover 5 significant air frames that have played their part in the history and culture of New Zealand aviation over the past 6 decades.
These former New Zealand airliners are in different locations across the globe.
A recce team sent from New Zealand will need to seek them out and save them.
Funds will be used to send a recce party lead by broadcaster Paul Brennan with an aircraft structural engineer and a negotiator to the five overseas locations to ascertain if the Electra, DC-8, B737, DC-10 and B747 can be recovered.
These aircraft were all originally delivered to TEAL, NAC and Air NZ - the only ones remaining, modern day equivalents to the mighty Maori ancestral waka.
This is phase one, with your help, recovery/storage/restoration can go ahead if phase one is successful.
