Operated by TAA under a swap deal with Ansett in which it received three TAA Viscounts for two DC-6Bs. It was to allow the two airlines to operate identical fleets on identical schedules to bring stability to the airline industry after the collapse of ANA. The identical fleets crumbled in the 1980s and deregulation introduced in the 1990s. Neither TAA nor Ansett have survived.
