Sydney-K.Smith, Newcastle-Williamtown, Luskintyre, Cessnock, Warnervale 27th February 2023 (John Tomlinson)

Another day around the Sydney area.

Again, prior contact before our tour left the UK to various airfields enabled the group to have ramp and hangar access with knowledgeable and interesting guides.

The request:
Warnervale~NSW In hangar 1
Advised that is was VH-BWX a Steen Skybolt. But this is the incorrect registration.
