Photo taken about a year after the RAAF base closed for the second and last time. It had been built during World War II as part of the Empire Air Training Scheme. It closed after the war and became a camp for displaced persons from Europe. The RAAF returned in September 1951 with the No. 1 Basic Flying Training School until it returned to RAAF Point Cook in December 1958. The hangars and buildings were auctioned in the 1960s and airfield sold as farmland. The control tower in the photo is not the wartime structure. That was relocated to Evetts Field near Woomera.

Investigators examine the wreckage of the Merlin glider of the Canberra Gliding Club, which crashed on 27 December 1959 when its wing detached soon after casting off from an aero tow. Pilot killed. The wing strut to fuselage attachments were inadequate, as the result of a rebuilt after an earlier accident. The unregistered glider first flew in 1943 and had made several thousand flights before the fatal final rebuild. Gliding was unregulated in 1943 with no registration or type approvals required. When gliding became regulated in the 1950s, existing gliders did not have to comply.
