VH-MMY DHC-6 Twin
The photo above (from the Geoff Goodall collection) shows VH-MMY 'RMA Yampi' at Paraburdoo,
WA in October 1971. Brokered out
of the Downsview, Ontario plant by
Air Capital International,
was briefly registered N1566 before being flown across the Pacific to
Sydney and on to Perth
arriving on New Year's Day, 1968.
It was used mainly on MMA's Kimberly
sold to Aeropelican in April 1976, a company already using Twin
Otters on its Sydney-Newcastle
. The image below was taken Peter Ricketts (via Geoff's
collection) at Bankstown in 1977. This
aircraft was withdrawn from service in
1987 and scrapped at Bankstown.
