VH-TGW  DHC-6 Twin Otter 200                      (c/n  120)


                                        Originally built as N7253 for Air Capital International, it was delivered to TAA for its Papua
                                        New Guinea services in May 1968.  I assume ACI were some sort of broker.  In September
                                        1976 it was sold to Masling Commuter Services in whose titling it is seen above at Mascot
                                        on 12 October 1976 in this shot by Greg Banfield, still wearing basic TAA Sunbird livery. 
                                        Two years later it went to Talair in New Guinea and shortly after that was registered in the
                                        newly independent country as P2-RDE.     It then appears to have been repatriated back to
                                        Australia at some time as VH-KEA for Eastland Air.   It is no longer current. .
