No..no....that pic of the square powder magazine bunker shape on Batmans hill in 1856 was the footings for the Grollo Tower lift core.

auslankan, the aerodrome you refer to was Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) later the Government Aircraft Factory (GAF) conceived by the BHP industrialist Essengton Lewis and people like Holden's Laurence Hartnett in 1935, and opened in 1937. Thousands of military aircraft were built there through World War 11 to the jet age, including Canberra bombers, Vampire fighters, the CAC Sabre (pictured) up to the assembly of Mirages and the Macchi trainers, and later.I bet not many people realised there was an "areodrome" at Fishermans Bend up untill the 1950s as shown on the map.
