VH-MMB  (2)    Douglas DC-3CS1C3G     (c/n  16968/34228)


                                 The above photograph is from the Geoff Goodall collection. VH-MMB began life as a fairly late
                                 model C-47B-45-DK, delivered to the USAAF at the end of the war as 45-0965.  It went to
                                 the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 1947 as NZ3557, and was civilianized for New Zealand
                                 National Airways Corporation as ZK-AOH that same year.  MacRobertson Miller Airlines
                                 (as it was by then) purchased it in 1962 as VH-MMO, but almost immediately relegated it up
                                 the hierarchy as VH-MMB.  It was sold in 1969 to Merpati Nusanatara (Indonesia's second
                                 airline, after Garuda) as PK-NDG. After a spell with Dirgantara Air Services as PK-VTM it
                                 went to the Indonesian Air Force as AF-4775, and was finally retired as 'R1-001' .
                                 It was withdrawn from service at Jakarta Halim Airport in 2001.
