regular TAA operation. Became VH-SBE in 1960. Greg Banfield's shot
above was taken at Mascot in October
1966 Purchased by CASI (Continental Air
Inc) in 1968 and was one of
the DC-3s leased by Air America during the Viet Nam war.
This one was registered
XW-PFT, based in Vientiane. It (somehow) survived that S.E. Asian
conflict and was returned
to CASI and sold to J.M. Garfinkle, of Tarzana, California, dba East
Asia Air Transport of Phnom Penh,
as N83AC. Its registratiuon was cancelled in 1981.
Presumably the aircraft was
scrapped in Cambodia.
