VH-MMU Fokker F-27
Theoretically outside the 'window' of my original
collection, this photograph by Merv Prime
was acquired to
illustrated my book "Airlines and Airliners of Yesteryear'.
In the event, no
publisher evinced interest
in doing it, and hence I will include both this and VH-MMV in my
collection, since they are very nice images. MacRobertson Miller
leased this F-27 in
1966-67 from Philippine Airlines and
named it 'Mabuhay' (a generic Philippine word closely
allied to 'Aloha' and
meaning pretty much anything you want it to mean - normally 'Welcome'
or some such).
It returned to Philippine Airlines as PI-C512 and then went on to
in Italy as I-SARO.
