This aircraft was originally 42-93200, a
C-47A-20-DK Skytrain, which was allotted to the
RAAF becoming A65-51.(VHCIH). TAA received it in 1946 and
named it 'McKinlay'
years later withdrew it from
active service in Brisbane in 1968. I saw it at Essendon
(above) in 1955.
The late (and great) Greg Banfield
took a shot of it at Mascot in Jan-
(below) wearing the then contemporary TAA livery. In 1969
Seulawah Air Services
dba Mandala Airlines as PK-RDH. It was withdrawn from use
still on their books.
