Troops have been moving back to the base for the past fortnight, the small runway has seen various aircraft landing and unloading supplies.
The military base, as older residents will remember, brought lots of money into the community and many businesses flourished during its time here. Government budget cuts saw the base temporarily closed.
However the base has reopened as an army training ground and research facility, with a mix of veteran soldiers, new recruits and civilian scientists.
