Angelfield was offered to Murgon Council by Martha Angel in 1932. The airfield has been in use since that time. The Angel family, well known for their support of community activities and aviation in the community and have active flyers in it. The club is improving the airfield for both the flying community and emergency services for Murgon. Angelfield can provide a vital link to the outside in emergencies such as flood events.
