Just a few air-side places to visit, virtually or otherwise...
There's RAAF Richmond, roughly adjacent to and north of the old Clarendon airfield.
Nearby neighbour RAN base Schofields, a bit too close to Richmond to survive, so it didn't.
Of course there's Sydney(Kingsford-Smith), but that's obvious.
And of course Bankstown, a big, busy GA field with a long history, hemmed in by development but hanging in there.
And Top Gear Australia for a brief time made the most of Camden's distance from Sydney to make use of its quiet taxiways for TV car tests. It's a useful and historical airfield that plays a key role in training and GA work but remains fairly underused.
And Hoxton Park has been axed. chopped up and largely built over.
There's also long-lost Hargrave Park - too close to Bankstown - that is just a memory, and a collection of interesting street names
Did I say long-lost? How about the Jamison Park airfield at Penrith
And many more ex-WWII airstrips dotted around the city's extremities, most lost, a few active like Oaks Airfield or not, like at St Marys.
