First call after leaving the Hotel was the Honolulu Army Museum. This is located in a park near to the Docks. They have an AH1 displayed on the roof which is easily seen if you do not want to pay the $25 entry fee.

67-15796 AH1S*

From here I took a scenic coastal drive around to Kanehoe Bay. It is unfortunate that a lot of the beaches and Scenic look out points are inhabited by the destitute population in their home made tents and all their worldly belongings in supermarket trolleys. It somewhat spoils the whole experience. There are more here than I think I have seen anywhere in the world so anyone thinking of visiting make sure you keep all your belongings very well secured as the atmosphere is distinctly unfriendly.

After picking up some sandwiches and drink at a local deli I enjoyed a couple of hours sat at He’eia Kea Small Boat Harbor. This is directly under the approach to Kaneohe Bay MCAS. The airport is not visible from the outside. However, from the boat harbour everything on the aprons can be seen but sadly not read off. However, the place was exceptionally busy with many F18s circuit bashing. Besides those logged below there were UH1Y, AH1, MV22B and 6 Jolly Greens which didnt move. In all looks like around 20 F18s here.

N327AX Hawker Hunter

Not often you see two hunters in tight formation circuit bashing!

After another scenic drive through the mountains I returned to Honolulu to see out the rest of the day. Log is included above.

My last full day in Hawaii tomorrow so will report back from here with a log for Honolulu and the two remaining airfields on the Island I haven’t yet visited.
