About Bring Our Birds Home

'Bring Our Birds Home' is a campaign (see link to BOBH website below) founded by New Zealand broadcaster and aviation historian Paul Brennan with the support of over 3K followers to save and recover 6 significant air frames that have played their part in the history and culture of New Zealand aviation over the past 6 decades... BOBH became a NZ registered charitable trust in July 2018. These former New Zealand ordered and delivered airliners are in different locations across the globe. To save and secure the derelict air frames in to BOBH ownership and store them before eventual shipping to New Zealand we need to raise 150K USD.

Funds will are being used to initially save and secure via purchase of the derelict DC-8-52 (located derelict Manaus Brazil), B737-219 (located derelict NC, USA), Hs 748 (located derelict Dhakar Bangladesh) and DC-10-30 (located derelict Havana Cuba) asap and later facilitate the reclaiming of a B747-419 (operated by Wamos Spain) and L-188 Electra (operated by Buffalo Airways Canada) as they are withdrawn from commercial service in the next 3 - 8 years.

These aircraft were all originally delivered to TEAL, NAC and Air NZ and Mt Cook Airlines - the only ones remaining, modern day equivalents to the mighty Maori ancestral waka (see migration canoes link below) - it is our plan to eventually display these historic air frames at New Zealand's National Toy & Transport Museum at Wanaka, South Island New Zealand (see museum link below).
