Power consumption review
Nearing completion
-
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.

Constellation
The Constellation has been purchaced and has been dismantled prior to shipping.
Fundraising
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.
