Changes at Adelaide Airport

With all the current changes at Adelaide Airport, Aviation Media will be there this week and next week producing video segments for 5DME.NET.

In the coming week, around the 27th of July 2011 Sir Richard Williams Avenue will be closed so construction crews can proceed with the multi level car park. Aviation Media will be showing the construction progress and holding interviews with Aviation Historian, Nigel Daw.  

Our crew has been documenting all the changes including the new control tower which is due to be in service early next year. The material will be available on the web site next week.




New Control Tower Coverage by 5DME.NET

Local aviation web site has been covering the new state-of-the-art control tower construction since the ground breaking ceremony in 2010. Aviation Media has been providing many of the images you see relating to the new tower. Our images and video for 5DME has been the only complete coverage of the project.


Adelaide Control Tower Footings

Concrete piers were set down some 29 metres into the ground.


Adelaide Control Tower Metal Work

A substantial amount of wire mesh and steel rods were installed for the footings.


Continuous pour concrete core

Concrete was continuosly poured day and night until the core reached about 21 metres in height.


Main Tower Core

The 21 metre core had a pre-cast concrete flared section added and the cabin will be built on top. This will make the overall height around 44 metres.


5DME Coverage

There are over 400 images in the 5DME Galleries and many videos about the construction on the 5DME web site.
