Uiver Memorial Aircraft
In 1979, the Rotary Club of Albury West decided to erect a memorial to commemorate the link between the people of Albury and the Netherlands as a project to celebrate Rotary's 75th Anniversary.
With funds raised from a successful air carnival, the club purchased a derelict DC-2 airliner and transported it from Bankstown Airport to Albury, restored it and renamed it the Uiver.
In 1980, the aircraft was mounted on to an elevated stand at Albury Airport, but due to its age and exposure to the elements, its condition continued to deteriorate.
In 2013, AlburyCity signed a Heads of Agreement with the Uiver Memorial Museum Group (UMMG) which will undertake a full restoration of the DC2 memorial aircraft. It will eventually be placed back on display.
