This day a year back I attended the Twilight Lightning Preservation Groups photo shoot event. It also was a special occasion to remember one of my pals who had recently died, Peter O'Callaghan also an LPG member. Little did we know then, that this would be the last fast taxi event that the two jets would perform.
The airfield was leased to Cox Automotive who store cars for sale at auctions. Today there is a fence surrounding the Lightning Hangar which prohibits movement of the jets. A Museum is being planned and work under way to clear the trees adjacent to the Hangar on which hardcore will be eventually laid.
