VH-RAJ  (1)   de Havilland D.H.104 Dove 5                        (c/n 04119)


                                    In the early 1960s there was money to be made in shuttling scientists to and from Adelaide and
                                    the Woomera Rocket Range and the Maralinga Atomic Test Grounds.  This opportunity was not
                                    lost on Robby's, who acquired this Dove with which to participate in these shuttle runs.
                                    C/n 04119 had probably, in its lifetime, had more identities than any other Dove.  It was,
                                    respectively, VP-KDG, VH-MAB, VH-AWF, VH-MMP, VH-RAJ, VH-TLU, VH-RCI,
                                    and  VH-CTS.   When the atomic test were ended, Robby's sold the Dove to S.A. Air Taxis
                                    Ltd.   The two shots on this page, both from the lens of Geoff Goodall's indubitable camera
                                    were taken (above) at Parafield in early 1962 and (below) a year later at Adelaide Airport.
