A team of 14 QAM volunteers arrived in Mareeba this week and work is being done to split it into four pieces to be transported back to Museum at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.
And the transport of the Neptune commenced on Friday 12 February with a pair of semi-trailer trucks departing Mareeba for Townsville and eventually points South.
For some more great photos on the progress of dismantling and transporting the Neptune, check out the QAM's Facebook page.
For more information on the airframe, check out the QAM's website.
Well done to the QAM for securing this lovely old sub hunter.
Thanks to Dave G of Maryborough Aviation Services who also provides assistance to the Queensland Air Museum for sending through some of these photos!
