One of those members, Noel Finch was most impressed with all the exhibits in the hangar, wonderful Aircraft and munitions were all there and easily accessible.

“We had a wonderful guide, who directed us to the next hangar,” Mr Finch said.

“And there she was! A wonder to behold, a Vampire Jet.”

My Finch told News Of The Area, “I started my employment as an Apprentice at DeHavilland Aircraft factory at Bankstown Airfield in 1957 and worked there, building these Ladies of the sky for many years.”

“To see one so well restored and on display made my day,” he said.

This was just one of many and varied trips the Port Stephens Friendship Group takes and all are welcome to join.

Monthly meetings are at the Diggers Club, Nelson Bay on the last Tuesday of each Month at 5pm.
