                                      Seen above in this shot by Geoff Goodall is VH-MMO "RMA Ord" at Perth Airport in July 1968
                                      in the original MMA Friendship "Jetstream Service" color scheme.     The grainy shot below was
                                      obtained from MacRobertson Miller in the mid-1970s after it had been repainted in full Ansett
                                      markings.  This Friendship was originally delivered to Ansett-ANA in 1960 as VH-FNF.   It was
                                      leased to MMA in 1964, and later to another Ansett Transport Industries subsidiary, Airlines of
                                      North Territory in December of 1981.   Following stints with several other ATA subsidiaries it
                                      was finally withdrawn from service at Melbourne's; Tullamarine Airport in 1989 where it was used
                                      for several years for fire training practice.  Bob Smith has an  excellent selection of photos of it on
