Wings Over Illawarra - Feb 2011
Greg and I took the Humber Sceptre to the ‘Wings Over Illawarra’ Day, which is a plane and car show at Illawarra Airport. A group of aviation enthusiasts have restored lots of old planes, including a Constellation called Connie and a lot of other planes flew in for the event. A number of car clubs assembled at Albion Park Showground and then went in convey to the airfield. There were about 400 cars lined up, mainly from Australia, Britain and America in a variety of shapes, condition and colours. My Humber Sceptre had many favourable comments again, as many people had not seen one before. Between looking at the other cars and watching the air show, we had a great day, but next time we will have to remember to bring our ear muffs! The only problem was at the end when all the old cars had to exit with the other cars onto the busy Princess Highway. We were stationary for about 30 minutes and took one and half hours to get home. The Humber took it in great stride and didn’t overheat, but a lot of the older cars had problems.
