Driving Tour – September 16, 2023 – Beechcraft Heritage Museum – Tullahoma

If You Missed this HR&R Tour, You missed a Real Treat!

Saturday, September 16, our great Honk, Rattle, and Roll Club headed for Tullahoma on a rainy, drizzly day after enjoying coffee and donuts at Loafers’ Glory. Several members arrived early and enjoyed just sitting and conversing prior to our leaving. 

Our lunch stop was at Damron’s Restaurant just a few miles from our ultimate destination. This little restaurant was fabulous! Everything was homemade and delicious. The hamburgers were hand-rolled and huge! Several club members stated that they eat there regularly and have never had a bad meal! This place is highly recommended!

After lunch, we arrived at the Beechcraft Heritage Museum. The airfield was covered with small, privately owned aircraft. HR&R did this same tour in 2017; however, the museum has added a new and even larger building since then. The airplanes, particularly the “cut-away” planes and engines, were truly fascinating.

This tour was attended by 44 club members, most of whom drove their modern “iron” due to the weather. However, one vehicle did truly stand out – the Amphicar driven by Mark and Vicki Qualls.

Special thanks to Paul Collins, the Tour Director, and Russ Barnes, the Tour Planner, for all their time and effort in planning a wonderfully fun and educational day for all of us! Thanks, guys!!
