Foreign Airfield Visit

Sydney & Bankstown – Tuesday 25th February 2020 (Mark Paulin)

Morning all,

A delayed log for yesterday after Virgin Media online E mail has gone offline!

A clear and warm day with temperatures nudging 30c. The planned road trip was changed as a number of frames were due at both Sydney and Bankstown during the day meaning I ended up with over 30 frames yesterday!

The whole Western end of the airfield is now a building site. Toll Freight are having a new distribution centre built. Also the area where the former museum stuff was stored has been completely cleared and no sign of the aircraft that were there so I can only assume that they have been broken up. VH-BZL Be400 that was stored here last year has also now disappeared.

We then headed back to Sydney for a required Air Calin A339. Noted 1230 – 1315
