Photo Comment

Ex RAAF, VH-SJG was among a collection of aircraft purchased by Jetair. Jetair never really got going before it failed. Most of its fleet was acquired by the government and exported as aid. But -SJG remained and flew on until 1978 carrying cargo over Bass Strait. It ran out of flying hours and was bought by aircraft collector Malcolm Long. In 1988 he donated it the RAAF Museum at Point Cook where it is displayed in its original markings as A81-1.
