Photograph 0078 - Darwin's RAAF Base Fogging Machine 1962

This fogging machine was used exclusively on the RAAF base for mosquito control but other machines were used around the Darwin suburbs. This practice continued until the early 1980s when it was stopped for health reasons. Helicopters are now used to spray the swamps around Darwin when the tides are high.
