A short time after the bushfires of 1962, a C170 flown by Basil Carlyle landed on what has become known as the Coldstream airfield.


This landing occurred on March 11 1962 and was probably where the taxiway exists today.


2012 will be the 50th anniversary of this landing and the start of this airfield. During the early days Schutts operated the flying school and the aircraft based at Coldstream were mainly Austers and De H.


To commemorate this day all past Instructors, Students, Airfield tenants and indeed anyone interested in having a look at YCEM are invited to attend.
