Lincoln’s interest in aviation began in his teenage years. Learning to fly and subsequently being endorsed on several aircraft. During his early flying career visiting airfields abroad was common. At one field there were aircraft lining the sides of the runway. He could have started his collection then. However, it was not until later that the interest in collecting was started.
The museum which is located north of Adelaide approximately 3 kilometres along the Kapunda Road out of Greenock is host to a Camberra Bomber, a P51 Mustang, many static displays, photographs, pictures and a collection of over 1400 1/72 scale models.
Visitors can browse at their own pace and Lincoln is a rich source of information about the displays and aviation history.
