The idea of building the BHP Australian Historical Flying Museum came to HARS in the year 2001 (December). A huge meeting was held regarding this matter. The participants in this meeting were senior management of BHP Billiton, Cleary Bros Concrete, Shellharbour City Council, other Wollongong and Kiama Councils and Australian Steel Mill Services. The meeting was held at Albion Park airport, near Wollongong. After a successful meeting it was decided that a planned $10m aviation museum, education center, retail center and maintenance facilities for HARS would be created. The BHP Steel provided the materials for upgrading the Albion Park aerodrome and for building the BHP Australian Historical Flying Museum in Wollongong.
