As you can see from this aerial shot, the top dressing of the main East/West runway is now completed.
All that is required is for some more gentle showers and a few warmer days to bring the grass through.

Anyone for a game of lawn bowls?
The work on the East-West Runway is now complete. All that is needed is for mother nature to take over and allow the grass to grow. By September/October our 125 metres long by 12 metres wide level runway should be fully grassed and ready for Fly-ins and the jet aircraft.
Thanks to our faithful workers:- Ken Harris, Geoff Pinkerton, Rod Winton, Jim Willson, Byron Web, Roy Salmon, Alan James, Andrew Wellington.
Shade Protection Stands and Pilot Safety Fencing
The construction of the shade protection stands and the pilot safety fencing is well underway and should be at the airfield within the next month. The costs involved have been covered by a grant received from the MAAQ (Model Aeronautical Association of Queensland).
