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.
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.
