Hoxton Park Sunset

An atmospheric shot of the flightline at Hoxton Park aerodrome near Sydney, c1973. At left is Beech Musketeer VH-DLY, with Victa Airtourer 115 VH-PHP in the centre. At right Musketeer VH-MJA is shutting down after the last flight of the day. Hoxton Park was a great place to learn to fly – away from the traffic of Bankstown, surrounded by rolling hills and open pastures. All gone now, pastures and aerodrome alike, swallowed up by the creeping blight that is the city.
