VH-TAC (1) Douglas
This, the first VH-TAC ('John Forrest') was only with
airline for 18 months in 1946-48
was then leased to BCPA
as VH-BPA 'Adventure'.
At the end of the lease it did not
to TAA, but was sold to Qantas
Kong Trader' registered VH-EBL.
photographs of it in TAA
are livery are rare, and I am indebted to Barrie
Colledge for this
image of it, scratchy
though it may be. Note the early rendition of the
(the script style was not adopted until about
1948). Ansett-ANA purchased
1961 when it became VH-INY.
