Australian Aeronautical Heritage

Airfields

These aerial photographs of Queensland airfields are scanned from prints and original negatives currently held by the Queensland Air Museum Incorporated. Most date from the period 1950 – 1980.

The collection, which was rescued from a waste bin in 2002, mostly comprises images flown by the former Departments of Transport and Civil Aviation at varying altitudes. While some are identified, others aren’t. Drop us a line if you think you recognize any of the latter.

Names – and codes – used in the current En Route Supplement Australia (ERSA) have also been adopted here for certified, military and registered airfields.
