Perth Airport 1962 Control Tower & Fire Station – photos taken just prior to demolition

In late 2010, in response to queries from Aviation Association of WA, Perth Airport advised that preparations were underway to ready the 1962 tower and fire station for demolition. We followed up on this again in February 2011, and were advised that the facility was to be demolished within a month.

Perth Airport kindly granted permission to AAWA for airside access to photograph the old tower and fire station as a historical record.
