More information

The site consists of remnants of the WWII engineering workshops, gun emplacements, squadron camp, roads, parade ground and water bores alongside Pell airstrip. The site is divided into three areas: (i) the airstrip of which little remains; (ii) the workshop area; (iii) the camp. Pell Airfield was developed as part of the Aerodrome Development Program in early 1942. Pell was established as an aircraft salvage, repair and servicing facility, in contrast to those airfields further north at Sattler, Strauss and Livingstone, which served as fighter strips. The airstrip was named in honour of Major Floyd J Pell, who was killed during the first Japanese attack on Darwin on 19 February 1942
