Forrest Airport Terminal Building

Forrest Airport (IATA: FOS, ICAO: YFRT) is an airport located in the tiny hamlet of Forrest, Western Australia. The airport is clearly visible from the Indian Pacific train which services the Trans-Australian Railway.

In the 1930s[2] and for current planes with short range flight capacity, it is an important stopping place for refuelling[3]
