Wollongong-Illawarra Regional~NSW Historic Aircraft Restoration Society 28th February 2023 (John Tomlinson)

A very busy museum day and next up was Wollongong-Illawarra Regional~NSW and the Historic Aircraft Restoration Society

A pre arranged tour where you had a personal guide for the group. No wandering off doing your own thing! Excellent visit thought, was taken everywhere.

A few unmarked items are still required. I have put my photo link next to the relevant aircraft in case someone on the forum can help.
