'Captain Jack Curtis' This aircraft was built as a C-47A-1-DK with USAAF serial 42-92274 but was delivered to the RAAF as A65-29. Post-war it became VH-TAE with TAA, before going to their New Guinea 'Sunbird' services as VH-SBL. It went to Air Niugini in 1973 and became P2-SBL the following year (later P2-ANR). In 1992 it returned to the Australian Register as VH-SBL. Seen here arriving at the Narromine Airshow.
