Habonim – Wednesday 8th May 2019 (John Tomlinson)

We had just been to the furthest point North at Atlit and now moving back South.

A small airport called Habonim is next to the coast and had a number of Dornier Do.28’s, unfortunately they all appeared to be in a slowing declining condition.

The airfield also had a parachute club, called Paradive, as well as having a small private museum. The museum was closed, with no one to ask, however we were able to view the exhibits through the large window frontage.
