Film footage showing the original Uiver aircraft and then-Albury mayor Alfred Waugh has been added to Albury's collection related to the city's famous aviation story.
The recently discovered footage, a decorative silver bowl and a brass vase have been donated separately to the museum, with the latter two being among the gifts later given to Albury residents involved in the 1934 emergency landing.
Uiver historian Noel Jackling said the film had been found in a Wodonga house, apparently left behind by former residents.
"I was excited by it because … it showed some of the key people on the Uiver and the Albury mayor," he said.
"It reveals very clearly the beginning of the transition from the old wooden fabric planes to the new all-metal planes."
Albury mayor Kevin Mack said the objects had been acquired through the passion and hard work of the Uiver Memorial Community Trust, Mr Jackling and the staff at Albury Library Museum.
“They will make valuable additions to our Uiver Collection, ensuring Albury continues to nurture the story of one of Australia’s most amazing aviation incidents,” Cr Mack said.
The new acquisitions will be on display at the Library Museum until June 17.
