From taxiway to suburban street

Back in February I put up a number of posts about Darwin’s role during World War II. Having had a break from war and mayhem I’ll be posting some more photos over the coming weeks.

Parap and Fannie Bay were part of the aviation defence of the city. Former taxiways and airstrips have become absorbed into suburban streets leaving the casual observer no clue of their former history.

Observant pedestrians will notice plaques like this one along the footpaths, and occasional markers with propeller markings.
