VH-PNI crashed at Mount Giluwe on September 1, 1972. The ease of loading awkward loads into the Skyvan was appreciated in Papua New Guinea but not its lack of range. Only Patair operated them, with other operators preferring the Twin Otter.

This aircraft was one of two of these excellent STOL aircraft purchased by Patair (Papuan Air Transport) in May 1966. The aircraft was transferred to Ansett Airlines of Papua New Guinea in November 1970, when Patair operations were merged into theirs, thus dating the photos to the period 1966-70.
