It is our team’s very sad duty to announce today that our Director, Thérèse Angelo MNZM, has passed away following a long, and brave, fight with illness. Thérèse has left an indelible mark on our Museum in the 31 years she spent here. Her loss will be deeply felt amongst our team, as well as so many who knew and worked with her across the RNZAF and museum and heritage sectors. Our love and thoughts are with her family at this very difficult time.
