Just as the region is surrounded by mystery and intriguing rock formations, the Alice Springs Airport has also had its own share of intrigue.
Built in 1940 by the Department of Defense and used primarily by the Royal Air Transport and the United States Air Force, to bring troops, and supplies into the area. The airport, then called the Seven Mile Aerodrome, quickly became the main transit base for RAAF transport planes during WWII. There were some civilian aircraft, but the main focus was the military, as a major refueling, staging facility for military transport planes, safely stowing the planes away in a neutral area while the war continued to rage in the north.
