Back home at the Qantas maintenance base following a flight to commemorate the 60th annivesary of the first service by Trans Australia Airlines using this very aircraft! The original flight departed Melbourne/ RAAF Laverton for Sydney. Laverton had to be used as the sealed runways at Essendon were being constructed at the time.

Back home at the Qantas maintenance base following a flight to commemorate the 60th annivesary of the first service by Trans Australia Airlines using this very aircraft! The original flight departed Melbourne/ RAAF Laverton for Sydney. Laverton had to be used as the sealed runways at Essendon were being constructed at the time.

Tucked under VH-TAC the Australian Airlines A300 this shows the relevant size of the DC-3. I was lucky to get this shot as both aircraft were moved and TAA actually waited until I arrived to make the move. ( It helps to work for an airline :) )
