VH-RMJ  Vickers 832 Viscount II                           (c/n  417)


                               This aircraft was delivered new to Ansett-ANA in 1959.  It is seen here at Essendon in this
                               shot from the Barry Maclean collection.   It was sold to Far East Air Transport (FAT) in Taiwan
                               in 1970, becoming B-2017.  I saw it many times at the old Chung Shan Airport but was too busy,
                               businesswise, in those days to attempt to get permission to go onto the ramp (which probably
                               would not have been granted anyway) to take shots of it.   It was leased to Indonesia's second
                               airline, Merpati Nusantara in 1975 as PK-MVN.      Later withdrawn from use and stored.
                               Below is a photograph by Peter Gates of it in 'secondary' (revised tail) Ansett-ANA markings,
                               while at the foot of the page Greg Banfield provides an image of -RMJ in full 'V832 Deluxe' tail
                               treatment taken at Mascot in October 1964.
