Sandringham - Southern Cross makes its last Atlantic crossing in October 1980. A group of aviation enthusiast came together to purchase and prepare the aircraft to be flown and resold to a British Museum. The AAB flight crew was contracted to move the aircraft. The first leg was to be St. Croix to Boston. Things didn't quite go to plan.
