Tarmac Day @ HARS - Historical Aircraft Restoration Society

From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th June 2019
9:30am - 3:30pm Save to calendar

The Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) is pleased to recommend its series of Tarmac Days showing off some of the unique aircraft held at its headquarters at the Illawarra Regional Airport at Albion Park.

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 and Neptune submarine hunter. There will also be guided tours of the aircraft on display.

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

Please note that tours of the 747 are subject to weather.

Volunteers are planning engine runs for their marine reconnaissance Lockheeds Neptune and Orion, World War II Dakota C-47 and unique three-engine de Havilland Drover aircraft on Saturday and Sunday 15-16 June.
Resplendent in its original French Marine livery, Neptune submarine hunter “566” is maintained for future generations to see how submarine patrols were conducted during the Cold War era .

The Neptune model P2V-7 was recovered from Tahiti by HARS volunteers and flown to Australia. They plan to conduct engine runs on the Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm.
The recently retired RAAF Orion turbo-prop AP-3C is the first of its type to fly under civil registration.

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!
