Mystery art emerges inside soon to open Canberra airport terminal
There is a stunning glimpse of a grey lady, or maybe it is something else, in some low resolution photos of work inside the rapidly finishing second half to the new Canberra airport terminal in Plane Talking’s mail overnight.
While not having any qualifications to judge on these things, it looks like a very impressive work of art to this occasional user of the airport.
The terminal is expected to be opened in full in March, after which the last traces of the old terminal will be demolished. No doubt the new Virgin Australia Lounge will be unveiled soon, with personally delivered hand written invitations to the hush hush and ultra plush Club also going out some of those who belong to the Qantas Chairman’s Lounge.
As reported earlier this week, Canberra Airport or its terminal would be a fine place in which to commemorate David Warren, the Australian inventor of the black box whose vision and persistence was so poorly treated in defence and civil aviation circles in this city before it became the most important contribution to safety ever made in air transport.
I cannot think of a more fitting place in which to set right a wrong in Australian history. Please sign Eve Cogan’s petition here.
