Historic Aviation Museum Visit
24 March 2020 / Words:Jennifer Keenahan ; Photos Phil Belcher
Our MX-5 Club run for this week started at the HARS Museum in Albion Park. The members who supported the event were not deterred by COVID-19 but we all followed the recommended guidelines and maintained social distancing. We were fortunate that Phil had a personal connection at HARS and we were given permission to park our MX-5 cars in a row under the wingspan of the Qantas 747.
This was a fabulous photo opportunity for all. We enjoyed morning tea in the café after which we split into two groups for our allocated tour.
Pete, a retired pilot, was one of the guides and he certainly made the tour interesting with his wealth of information and knowledge.
At about 1 p.m. we headed off for the run to Killalea National Park.
We were so fortunate to have such perfect weather, brilliant sunshine, and blue skies enabled us to thoroughly enjoy the lovely views this park has to offer. We sat in a circle under the shade of a tree where we enjoyed a picnic lunch and exchanged our supermarket and toilet roll stories. After a good laugh about these difficult times we knocked elbows and headed off home.
