VH-FKA arrived in Western Australia in June 1970 allowing the 'loaner'
VH-MMJ to be returned
Braathens Safe in Norway. Initially -FKA was given the same name
as -MMJ ('RMA Pilbarra
II' ) but by the time Geoff took the shot immediately below at
Carnarvon, WA in January 1974 the
'II' had been dropped. VH-FKA went on to fly for several other ATI related
entities (Airlines W.A ;
NSW; Ansett ; Ansett Australia, etc) before being scrapped at
Brisbane in 1996.
