VH-RMG  (1)   Vickers 832 Viscount II                     (c/n     414)


                               This photograph was taken at the Vickers works at Hurn in the UK, by Mr. Linday Wise, a
                               former Ansett engineer who had been despatched by Ansett-ANA to the manufacturer as
                               Resident Inspector in 1958/59.   VH-RMG was the first of four new 800 series Viscounts
                               ordered by the airline.   They served the airline well until 1970 and then were sold off to Far
                               East Air Transport in Taiwan who used them on their inter-island routes.   This machine became
                               B-2015, and served for a while, under lease, with Manadala Airlines in Indonesia as PK-RVP.
