VH-TGR  de Havilland Canada DHC-6-100 Twin Otter            (c/n   6)

                                              Clearly the STOL enhancing double-slotted trailing edge flaps and ailerons are causing
                                              considerable interest to the suits in this 1966 photograph by Richard J. Maclean of the
                                              first of TAA's Twin Otters.   This shot was taken at Essendon before the aircraft moved
                                              north into the environment in which it would be operated, namely Papua/New Guinea.
                                              VH-TGR crashed and was written off at Kainantu on 28 April 1970.    Allan Bovelt's
                                              photo below was at Lae in 1967.
