The adventure is over! See the latest newsletter

Aircraft arrived at Clamback and Hennessy's hangar at Tower Road, Bankstown at 2.12 pm.

The Australia Post mail was carried by the Aero 145 from Mittagong and the Jabiru piloted by Owen Zupp carried the re-enactment mail. 

The airmail was taken by a 1905 Delange car from Clamback and Hennessy's to the Australian Aviation Museum and then into the Powerhouse Museum by more modern French cars and delivered by Sydney's Republican Guard to the Bastille Day reception.

Postcards and mail picked up en route will be posted from Sydney on this Friday 18 July, the exact anniversary of Guillaux' arrival in Sydney.
