The History of Normanton QLD

The civil landing area just south of the town and adjacent the isolated railway line to Croydon was sufficient for incidental RAAF communications traffic that used it. Plans were prepared and commenced in 1944 for properly constructed runways and that work further upgraded is the Normanton Airport of today.
