Terry Le Sueur unveils sculpture in final act as chief minister
Terry Le Sueur unveiled the relocated statue, called Decollage, at 11:15 GMT, just hours before States Members elect a new leader.
He said he was honoured to be invited to unveil the statue.
The former senator said: "I am very pleased to have this last opportunity and to see this statue back by the airport.
"I am pleased that they can now be seen by everybody, and I am delighted to welcome the sculpture back.
"I'm going down to see my staff and say goodbye to them, then I have to do some tidying up in preparation for whatever I do next."
Mr Le Sueur did not seek re-election when his six-year term expired and has now retired from politics.
