Two classic former Australian defence warbirds - a RAN submarine hunting Grumman Tracker and a RAAF transport de Haviland Caribou - will take centre stage at HARS Aviation Museum this weekend.
This will take place as part of the January Tarmac Days, which aim to give the museum volunteers an opportunity to operate some of the almost 50 classics of Australian aviation on display across hangars at the Shellharbour Airport facility.
On Saturday, one of the two DHC-4 Caribou at HARS Aviation Museum is scheduled to fly, while the newly-restored Tracker will conduct engine runs.
Visitors can also check out four versions of the legendary Douglas DC-3, or C-47 Dakota in military designation, which last month marked 85 years of the type entering service.
The Tarmac Days run from 9.30am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday at the museum, located off the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail.
