VH-MMC  Avro 652A Anson 1                             (c/n  unknown)


                                  Two rare photographs from the Geoff Goodall collection showing an Anson (above) in the original
                                  MacRobertson Miller Aviation markings at Perth in the late 1940s, and (below) at Victoria River
                                  Downs Station in May of 1952 by which time the rego had been moved to the fin, as was normal
                                  for that era.  The Ansons were the first aircraft operated by MMA and incredibly flew a route from
                                  Perth to Darwin with them.  The weekly flight left Perth at 06.00 hrs on Tuesday and overnighted at
                                  Broome, having called at Geraldton, Carnarvon and Port Hedland.    The next day it went on to
                                  Darwin, arriving at 12.40 hrs having made stops at Derby and Wyndham.   A bi-monthly service
                                  was also flown to remote Victoria River Downs station where the lower shot was taken.  This Anson
                                  was the former RAF/RAAF R3548 and was one of a fleet of six.   VH-MMC was operated from
                                  July 1947 until September 1956 when it was sold to Patair in New Guinea.
