Photographed by the pilot in
command at the time, Ben Dannecker, this Baron was at Port Hedland,
in 1971 whilst the aircraft was operated by Trans West Air Charter.
Originally registered in
July 1968 to Noeska
Aviation of Norseman,
Esperance and Kalgoorlie, the company
for a rego with the initials of these three
towns. Even though -NEK would have been available they
got -KNE instead!
Anyway, the following year Noeska was taken over by the rapidly
Air Charter of Perth. After many years of hard work with Trans
West in the Pilbara iron
ore region of WA it was sold off
and met its end in an accident at Nugadong, WA on 9 May 1975.
