This was a Long Beach built
C-47A-30-DL, having USAAF serial 42-23730. It went to
the RAAF as A65-12 (VHCTN).
It was civilianized for TAA in 1946 and named 'Grey'..
My shot above was at Essendon in
1954. -TAN was sold to Mandated
Guinea in 1959 and reregistered VH-MAS. It operated with
1967, and was then sold to East Air Transport (FAT) in Taiwan in 1967
there. The nice color shot below was taken by Barrie Colledge in
