Canberra War Memorial

Photo Essay by Colin Owers

These are photographs have been taken by Colin Owers, and he has generously allowed me to put them on this web-site. These pictures show the Australian Zero V-173 before, during, and after restoration at the RAAF Base at Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. This Zero currently resides in the Canberra War Memorial museum.

This Zero is in VERY good condition.
