What are they doing there, and what's written on them?

Hello Phoenix, thanks for all your comments.

It's written : "May this Gateway stand to the realisation of humanities triumph over its own ignorance." It seems to be about rocket center of Woomera near by which was a restricted area.

Cheers

To what end?

Pierre-Jean Durieu on January 15, 2011

Hi Pietro,

As I explained when I posted this picture, it's written on the planes : "May this Gateway stand to the realisation of humanities triumph over its own ignorance." It's about rocket center of Woomera near by, which was a restricted area.

Greetings from Lyon. Pierre-Jean
