Mangalore’s a small town about 103 km / 64 miles north of Melbourne and was the site of a RAAF base.

The RAAF is long gone from there and the airport can handle big jets in case Tullamarine isn’t available.

Back in the 80s (at least), the Sport Aircraft Association of Australia used to have a fly-in over the Easter weekend and thanks to TAA in ‘85, and Ansett in ‘86, you could get there and back on the same day direct from a couple of cities, Adelaide being one.
