We've got permission to use these photographs now. Fantastic to see the field as a quarry in the 1970s, briefly as a film set (whilst it was already an airfield) in the 80s, and as it is now (the last image is the one submitted to CASA for our site approval).
A reminder to all that the 1st club night of 2016 is on TUESDAY 2nd Feb, 7:30pm, Belreose Bowls Club.
Ever wondered what our members do when they aren't flying? Kell Steinman designed boats, including a rather nice ship for the South Australian Government - see http://oneandallship.com.au/
Also, have a look at how our flying field looked back in 1972 (as a quarry) and in the early 80's when it was a film set.

Perhaps we should tell our tame mate that this is NOT where flying lizards come from!
