map of Eagle Farm shows only domestic terminals on the site so it
evidently dates from post December 1975 when the Temporary International
Terminal was opened on Boronia Road. The Kingsford Smith Memorial
housing the Southern Cross was situated at Location 1. The
area of hardstand at Location 2 was where one would find any interesting
visiting aircraft. Location 3 was the General Aviation parking area
which was grassed. Note the close proximity of Doomben and Eagle Farm
Racecourses. Always a source of confusion, the racecourse closest
to Eagle Farm Aerodrome was Doomben, not Eagle Farm as might be expected!
Television coverage of the Saturday races at Doomben would usually
show aircraft in the background and in those pre-Internet days this
was often an aviation enthusiast's first indication that something
interesting was in town.
