Dubbo Airport roads to be named after community members
DUBBO Regional Council recently adopted names for three new streets in new developments at the Dubbo City Regional Airport.
Walters Way, Weyand Drive and Howe Circuit recognise the contribution to the Airport and Emergency Services precinct under development by Olaf Weyand, Noel Howe and Max Walters.
Olaf Weyand established Airlink Airlines in 1974, which eventually became part of Regional Express (REX) Airlines. Mr Howe was a respected flight instructor, flying school owner and founder of the Dubbo Aero Club, and Mr Walters played a role in establishing the Dubbo Rescue Squad and NSW Volunteer Rescue Association.
