Tarmac Day @ HARS - Historical Aircraft Restoration Society

From Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March 2019
9:30am - 3:30pm Save to calendar

The Tarmac Days will be held outside the HARS hangars and will involve the static display of some its distinctive aircraft. Members of the public will be able to board and sit in some of the aircraft including the cockpits of aircraft like our F-111C fighter bomber.

 Former RAAF Neptune “273” is set to fly again during March Tarmac Days with HARS Aviation Museum at Illawarra Regional Airport.

The M.A.S.H. style Bell 47 in Australian army colours will be on show and able to take visitors on spectacular joy flights during March Tarmac Days at HARS Aviation Museum.

Visitors can climb aboard many of these and other vintage aircraft including the former US Air Force Lockheed C-121C Connie which was flown to Australia by HARS members who found her in a decrepit condition in an aircraft boneyard in the Arizona desert back in 1990.

It’s a remarkable opportunity to sit in the style in which Qantas used 16 of the long-range Super Constellations in the 1950s to pioneer around the world services.

With former RAN Historic Flight aircraft recently transferred to HARS, visitors can sit in the Wally the big Wessex helicopter at HARS Aviation Museum.

The tarmac days will be held on the second Friday, Saturday and Sunday of every month between 9:30am and 3:30pm.

If you can't make the Tarmac Day the aircraft museum is opened 7 days a week from 9.30am to 3.00pm. Why not come along for a guided tour!
