Photo from the late Jim Millar taken at the prewar airstrip at Wabag. VH-MAB moved to the Papua New Guinea register as P2-MAB in May 1974 and was later reregistered P2-ANX. The airstrip at Wabag was approved for DC-3 operations in 1956 but has since closed. Air services now use Wapenamanda Airport .
