The restoration of Boeing 747-438

A defining event in the recent history of HARS has been the arrival of the Boeing 747-438 aircraft, OJA, “The City of Canberra”.  A much loved aircraft, this piece of aviation history was maintained and operated by Qantas and is now on display at the HARS Museum. 

The team at HARS is working hard to maintain and preserve its appearance and is seeking public donations to contribute to the repainting and sheltering of the aircraft to protect its heritage.
