I flew into Essendon the other day for the first time in ages and was intrigued by the remains of the NE-SW aligned runway.
What were the alignment directions of this runway ? Was it sealed or part grass ? How long was it ? When was it last used ?
I understand that there were some hangars over on the Reservoir side of the N-S runways but that have long since been demolished. Can someone advise where these hangars (and other buildings ?) were located and how many were there ?
Questions. Questions. How about a few answers from old Essendon hands.
