VH-TJL  Douglas DC-9-31                            (c/n  47009)


                                      By the time Greg Banfield took this shot at Mascot in April of 1983, TAA had changed from
                                      their initial "TAA" T-Tailed Jet image to the rather smart rendition with orange and blue cheat
                                      lines seen above.  Many wags referred to this as the "Camel Hump" livery due to the stylized
                                      "TAA" on the fin and rudder.  Peter Hough's color shot below, on the other hand shows it in
                                      its original livery as delivered in August of 1967         It was one of six initially ordered by the
                                      state run airline.  In 1986 it was converted to a freighter and sold to Airborne Express as N938AX.
                                      It was withdrawn from service in 2007.
