Wigram aerial view.

At 9:22 am on September 11th 1928 the Southern Cross landed at Wigram Airfield.
There has been a fair amount of publicity about the 90th anniversary of this event in the media over the last few days.

Below is a photograph of Wigram as seen today.
Across from left to right just below the centre of the photo is 'The Runway" .
The large building on the "Runway' right of centre is the New World Supermarket.
Across the bottom of the pic is Wigram Road.
The large white building on the edge of the remaining grassed area is the Air Force Museum.
There is a plaque and memorial wall in Bennington Way to commemorate the landing spot.
I have marked the approximate spot with a small white circle.

I did an earlier post on this landing spot. see HERE
