VH-MMB (3) Fokker F.27
Despite its early registration,
VH-MMB was the last of some half dozen F.27s operated by MMA
to join the fleet, not doing
so until August of 1970. It was a 'previously owned' machine,
by LTU in Germany as D-BAKU
(having been recycled back through the Fokker factory for refurb-
ishment as PH-FSG).
It did not stay with the MMA division of Ansett long, for
by March 1971 it
was sold to East West Airlines.
Geoff Goodall's two images show it (above) at Perth in
before the sale to EWA and (below) at Albury, NSW in June 1972 in EWA
returned to Europe in July 1978
when it was to Air Executive in Norway, becoming LN-NPH.
