VH-TBC  (AP-AML)  Bristol 170 Mk 31M Freighter                     (c/n  13188)


                                        In 1961 TAA acquired three Bristol Freighters from the Pakistan Air Force.  Only VH-TBB was
                                        converted for operation.  VH-TBC and VH-TBD were never actually civilianized and were both
                                        redueced to spares.  Greg Banfield took this shot of the aircraft which was to have become
                                        VH-TBC in the TAA hangar at Mascot on 29 November 1962.  Both it and AP-AMK (VH-TBD)
                                        were painted in drab olive green and brown camouflage.
