Current and future QFM Projects
The Catalina is now complete and a key exhibit at the Qantas Founders Museum.
After the massive task of flying the aircraft from Spain to Longreach, the aircraft was met by 93 year old former Qantas First Officer Dr Rex Senior who flew Catalinas during World War Two. The Catalina is now complete and a key exhibit at the Qantas Founders Museum.

Power consumption review
The museum has a bank of solar panels on the roof and there is a schedule in place to replace all the lights to low consumption bulbs. The museum constantly evaluates the power usage of the building. Electricity is one of our largest expenses and continuing to reduce it will allow expenditure in other areas.
Help us save Australia’s Aviation History
The Constellation has been shipped to Longreach and is about to be restored.
This is a massive task that will take some time and considerable money, however being such an important aircraft in the history of QANTAS, one that needs to be in the collection. It continues to be a major focus for the board.
