French Navy Flying Visit @Historical Aircraft Restoration Society
On Saturday 19th January 2019
10:30am - 3:00pm Save to calendar
A French Navy jet crew will fly into HARS Aviation Museum to pay respect to one of their former squadron aircraft. The French crew from 25F Navy Squadron arranged the visit during their current tour to Australia from their home base in Tahiti.
They will inspect the former “French Marine” Lockheed Neptune 566 which was built in 1959 and was recovered from Tahiti by volunteers from the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS).
Neptune 566 spent most of its life patrolling the Atlantic until it finished its career in Tahiti in 1984.
After the French Government donated “566” to HARS in 1987 the museum’s volunteers spent almost two years making visits to Papeete Airport restoring the former long-range maritime patrol anti-submarine aircraft so they could fly it to Australia.
