South Australian Aviation Museum
Vickers Vimy Propeller
This is probably the most significant propeller in Australia. It is what remains of the one of the two propellers that were used on the historic Smith Brothers flight from England to Australia in 1919. During road transport to South Australia in 1957, the Vickers Vimy suffered significant fire damage. This propeller and other genuine Smith Brothers Flight memorabilia can be seen at SAAM on the mezzanine level in Hangar 1. The Vimy aircraft was restored and is at Adelaide Airport.

Note: the list of propellors (above) is not a complete list of SAAM's collection.
