WERE THERE SPITFIRE PARTS
BURIED UNDER THE SITE OF
THE BASS HILL DRIVE-IN THEATRE
NEAR BANKSTOWN AIRFIELD, NSW?
There are stories about Spitfire parts buried in crates on the site that is now the Bass Hill Drive-in Theatre, at Johnston Road, Bass Hill, New South Wales less than 4kms from Bankstown aerodrome.
The Bass Hill drive-in theatre was still going strong in November 2005. The land it occupied was rezoned for housing several years ago, but Greater Union had intended on running it indefinitely into the future.
I was contacted by Alan Peters in February 2014 who advised that he had supervised the excavation and re-compaction of the entire Bass Hill Drive-in site for the new residential subdivision and no rubbish pits were located. Another urban myth debunked!
There are also rumours of a bunker in Johnston Road, Bass Hill which was somehow connected to 1 Fighter Sector Headquarters Bunker at Bankstown.
another one of the many urban myths
about buried aircraft or equipment
I'd like to thank Alan Peters, Adam Cassar, A. Beauman and David Kilderry for their assistance with this home page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
