RAAF Base Fairbairn/Canberra

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Mon, October 22, 2018 23:45:09

Although effectively side by side the RAAF base and Canberra airport are separate entities. The base was active from 1940 to 2007 after which the airport acquired much of the land. However Fairbairn is still in use by 34 squadron which handles RAAF VIP Transport. The base hangar, air traffic control tower, runways etc are all viewable from Mount Ainslee.
