New Addition to NVVM
On Tuesday the NVVM took delivery of Lockheed C130A Hercules A92-214 forward fuselage/cockpit section from the RAAF Museum Point Cook.
The heavily corroded C-130A aircraft A97-214 – which was beyond economical and practical repair – was scrapped at Point Cook (Point Cook) in February 2022, with the exception of the forward fuselage/cockpit section, which has been gifted to the National Vietnam Veterans Museum (NVVM) to be added to their collection.
The NVVM’s intention is to restore it and to allow visitors access to the cockpit to fully appreciate how big this aircraft is.
A special thank you to RAAF for donating it, to IAS Fine Art Logistics who financed the move, to Hi Haul Transport and Gows Cranes who collected the fuselage/cockpit from Point Cook and to our volunteers from the museum who helped with the move.
