VH-BBG Avro 652A
Anson 1 (c/n ?)
This interesting shot was taken at Port
Moresby, New Guinea, and shows an Anson with a
nose cone. Most Ansons had a hallmark 'flat nose' (compare this
VH-AOA). Noted aviation
historian Fred Niven states that both this, and VH-AOA were
by Papuan Air Transport at one period in their careers.
in the background is another Anson, this one
being the Department of Civil
VH-CAC. The shot below is from the Geoff Goodall collection
VH-BBG "out to
pasture" at Archerfield, Brisbane in 1959 after having failed a DCA glue
adhesion test. Barely visible are the
"Papuan Air Transport" titles above the windows.
