VH-FNM  Fokker F-27 Friendship 200                           (c/n 10292)


                                      Originally delivered in 1966 to Ansett-ANA, this aircraft was under lease to subsidiary Ansett-
                                      MAL (Mandated Airlines) by the time Barry Maclean took this shot at Essendon in 1967.  It
                                      was operated for a while by Ansett Airlines of PNG, but when Air Niugini took over those
                                      services it returned to Ansett Airlines of Australia.  After a spell with Bush Pilots Airways* it
                                      passed to Air Queensland in 1985.     Like its sister VH-FNG (which was, at the time, in Brazil)
                                      it wound up with Pakistan International Airlines in 1988 becoming AP-BDB.  It was withdrawn
                                      from use in 2006 and may have later been used as part payment for PIA's new Boeing 777s
                                      winding up with Cayman Islands registrations.
