VH-TJJ  Douglas DC-9-32                           (c/n  47007)


                                        The above shot, from the CAHS archives shows -TJJ at Sydney probably just after having been
                                        delivered.  Certainly it is in the original livery.   In the image immediately below, from the Macarthur
                                        Job collection, this scheme had been revised and 'modernized'.  .  -TJJ was the first of the original
                                        order for three DC-9s placed in April 1965.  A dozen DC-9s would eventually be taken on board
                                        by the carrier.        This, the first, named 'Edmund Kennedy' was delivered (March 1967) almost
                                        exactly two years after it was ordered.  It flew with TAA (and later Australian Airlines) for twenty
                                        years, being sold to Midway Airlines as  N938ML early in 1987.  Fergal Goodman saw it (foot of
                                        page) at Tampa International in October of that year after it had just joined its second owner.    In
                                       1992 it went to ASERCA as YV714C and wound up derelict at Caracas International Airport in the
                                        mid 2000s.
