Aerial views of Honeysuckle Creek



Several aerial photographs of Honeysuckle Creek were taken during and after construction.

Here are the ones we’ve seen so far –

 

Late May 1966

These aerial views of the Honeysuckle Creek site give an idea of how much was cleared to construct the station.

Undated, but comparison with this footage (taken 30 May 1966) shows it must be the last few days of May 1966.
