Twin Otter 200
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
was sold to Masling Commuter Services in whose titling it is seen above
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
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 It is no
longer current. .
