Fired Up at Boonah Airfield

The Boonah Airfield Committee was pleased to host Queensland Fire and Emergency Services on Sunday the 7th May 2023, for a major pre fire season exercise. Operation Mega Dam, was to test the equipment and capability of the support water tankers and portable collar dams.

Ultimate Aero provided a space for over 120 fire fighters and their trucks and the Boonah Airfield once again welcomed the water bombing aircraft and support ground crews.

Boonah Airfield is the only approved airfield in the QFES South East division that can support aerial firefighting capabilities, and with the black summer of 2019 still fresh in our minds, it provides a valuable asset for community protection.
