My first memory of Essendon Airport was watching friends of our family boarding an Electra. They were flying to Sydney, before then jumping on a second aircraft to fly overseas. This was long before Tullamarine!

Those were the days – being able to stand behind a low fence at the edge of the tarmac and witness moments like these up close.
