VH-TJA Boeing 727-176
In 1964 TAA acquired six new Boeing
727s-100s, its first pure jets. Seen above in this
shot from the Maurice Austin collection is the first one, "James Cook" at Essendon in 1964.
Peter Gates' photo
(below) shows it in its final livery a decade later (February 1974) at
Airport. The shot at the foot of the page, by Greg Banfield,
shows it in the revised
livery, taken at Mascot in September 1966. It was acquired
Air Leases in
N91891 and leased to Air
Florida in the 1970s as N40AF.
