Yes, I do like forms of transport that aren’t trains!
Having previous dealt with the perils of auto-generated website content in my post about the former township of ‘Sue City’, my recent random Google Maps wanderings around the greater Sydney area have found another mysterious location: ‘Sydney West Airport’. So what gives?
Planes, trains and automobiles. Usually the last mode of transport is the one that gets lost, but these photos suggest they might be times when aircraft pilots, train drivers, and even ship captains lose their way…
A few months ago I took a look at the control tower that once stood sentry over the former RAAF Williams airfield in the Melbourne suburb of Laverton – today I’m going for a drive down the runway to the heritage listed aircraft hangars.
For anyone who frequents the western suburbs of Melbourne, this sight should be familiar. So what is the story behind the abandoned control tower?
