Now here's a lovely
shot. Taken by Geoff Goodall outside de Havilland Australia's
Bankstown in July of 1967.
The aircraft had just returned from almost a decade of service in
the Territory of Papua and New Guinea (as it was then). It had
originally been delivered to
Qantas as VH-EAZ in 1958. It was one of four similar aircraft
acquired by TAA when that
carrier took over Qantas' internal PNG services in 1960 dubbing them
"Sunbird" at that time.
Geoff saw it again at Parafield a
few months later (below) with all vestiges of its previous
owner removed. It eventually went to Air West in Vancouver as
CF-XRI. Later still it was
converted to a Turbine-Otter and is, I believe still current with
Osprey Wings Ltd of La Ronge,
Saskatchewan (as C-FXRI).
