Forest Lake Fifty Plus Club visits RAAF aviation museum

ON A cool June morning, 52 members of The Forest Lake Fifty Plus Club boarded the Concorde Coach, with the first destination being Queens Park in Ipswich.

Cuppas, cakes and slices were served and eagerly consumed by all.

Following this stop, the next destination was the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Museum.

After having ID's checked, members were escorted by the military police into the museum, where they were greeted by volunteer guides.

The guides passed on their knowledge and history of all the different aircraft and military equipment that was on display.

This is a wonderful museum and one that should be on everyone's bucket list.

After the museum visit, it was time to visit the Walloon Saloon, where the group enjoyed a two-course meal and a few drinks. Some members even managed to put some extra cash into their pockets from the pokies.

After a wonderful day, the group made its way back to Forest Lake. Forest Lake Fifty Plus Club meets on the third Friday of the month at the Lions Richlands Club, Pine Rd, Richlands.

Sign on is at 10.30am for an 11am start. New members are always welcome.
