A nice Queen Air seen on display at the Parc Avenue theme park, still under reconstruction at the time. The park was formerly known as Aerocity, which closed in 2002. It reopened as Parc Avenue in 2010, only to close again in December 2014. This Beech, which flew as D-ILKE before becoming F-BTGL, had disappeared from this location by May 2015, fate unknown.
TAA operated a network of internal services inside Tasmania. The airline bought four Queen Airs for these routes and also for use in Queensland. The economics of a trunk airline operating light aircraft saw TAA and competitor Ansett abandon such routes in favour of third-level airlines formed by air charter operators. -TGA was sold to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Originally N6868Q of Beech Aircraft Corp and delivered to TAA on 9 July 1964. Registered as VH-TGA to the ANAC (t/a TAA) on 14 August 1964. Used on RDFS duties until 1968 and then registered directly to the Royal Flying Doctor Service themselves. It was sold in 1977 to Civil Flying Services. It went to East-West Airlines who operated it on behalf of N.S.W. Department of Health.
