The remarkable story of the Uiver has been told many times since the DC-2 aircraft's emergency landing in Albury 85 years ago.
It truly was an extraordinary event and one that continues to resonate today, even with it having played-out long before most in the Border community were even around.
The original Uiver had become lost on what was the final leg of an air race from London to Melbourne.
That meant its crew was forced to land at the Albury racecourse, with a path lit by residents who drove their cars to the course to provide guiding headlights.
The next morning, they helped pull the plane out of the mud.
In more recent years, the focus has been on safeguarding the future of the commemorative aircraft that for many years was on display at the Albury airport in recognition of the original Uiver and its story.
A group of volunteers is hard at it on two days every week and, as board member Pieter Mol has explained, the project is making good progress.
But more help is needed, in particular from those who can have skills in woodworking and metalwork.
That is because of the complex nature of the job.
As Mr Mol says: "It's proving more difficult to not only source some of the materials and the parts that we need, but also manufacturing those."
And being such an old plane, parts are extremely difficult to find so those with the knack when it comes to wood will be able to create the moulds around which sheet metal can be formed.
What's needed now, of course, is for more volunteers with these skills to come forward, in the same selfless way that the townsfolk of Albury did all those years ago.
"It's a story that resonates, even today," Mr Mol quite rightly says, "through the decades as being something very special, very spectacular."
