VH-TVG  Vickers 720 Viscount        "William Hovell"                      (c/n 84)


                                        Delivered in 1956.  My shot at Essendon in 1957.  Scrapped at Melbourne in 1967.
                                        An asset life of twelve years for an airliner today would be unthinkable.  As it was, this
                                        machine must barely have been amortized before being struck from the register?  
                                        Having said that, it did amass a total of over 27.000 flying hours.  In presenting Greg
                                        Banfield's shot below, taken at Mascot in April 1964, I'll also append an enlargement
                                        of the rego area underneath since it certainly cannot be read  on the 625 pixel image!
