Air Disaster Memorial [Ghost Strikes Again]

By Panhead 30 September 2009 15

Trekked out there a few nights ago and were victims of the car stalling and rolling forward experience. Some of our group also swear they saw a person on the track leading up to the memorial. Anyone else have any stories? I’ve never experienced…

[Ed] And there the story ended as though the ghost had come to finish poor Panhead off. The Air Disaster Memorial and other Canberra spooky places have been discussed previously on RiotACT here, here and here.

yea the new access road goes up between the speedway and paintball field……now that you mention engines suddenly stopping and refusing to start i recall this happening to me on the speedway many times……almost certainly caused by the ghosts i would say…..or perhaps holden v6’s dont like having the rev limiter removed and then being revved to well past 10000 rpm?…….either way i wish it’d stop bloody happening….

supernatural occurances, that is 😉

I went up there with Tim the Yowie man while I was researching my book. It’s an interesting place, quite eerie, but this is expected given it’s remote location, the history of the place, and the stories that circulate about it.

Suggestion is a major reason for individuals experiencing occurances.

I once did a big burnout there. Maybe that’s why ghosts hate cars.

Sorry guys, didn’t actually mean to post this. I was looking for the original topics and then exited the editor but it still posted :S

Must have been one of the ghosts you were asking about.

My friend told me about 10 years ago, him and his mates went up there and saw a young girl near the gate. They got out of the car and she disappeared. Later on when they had reached the top of the hill they saw her again sitting on the ground crying. One of the mates freaked out and sat in the car and the other mate tried to approach her, she ran off again into the darkness of the trees. The next weekend they took new friends up there to show them what they had seen – there again, the little girl was, standing by the gate.

A lot of people’s cars either stall or refuse to start around the area. A few documented stories. Considering my car is an auto as well.

If you go on the weird Canberra tour with Tim the Yowie man they actually have a key to the air disaster memorial area and drive the bus in there.

“victims of the car stalling and rolling forward experience”

What’s that got to do with ghosts?? There’s nothing unusual about a car stalling and then rolling forward.

> Yep, you have to walk there as the gate is locked.

So how then exactly did the original poster have the “car stalling and rolling forward experience”?

When I used to smoke Drugs, lots of stuff went on at the top of the hill, since going back after 10 years off the drugs, it wasn’t that fun… Nothing happend!

Isn’t the Air Disaster Memorial inaccessible at the moment because you have to go through the paintball field to get to it?
