Photo Comment

A few months after TAA sold its sole DC-6, DC-6A VH-TAD, it was back again at Sydney with new owner TMA. International cargo and passenger charters into Australia were severely restricted. But TMA appeared regularly exercising the long-standing air services agreement between Lebanon and Australia. Qantas operated to Beirut "in association" with BOAC, which actually operated the flights in an early version of code sharing. MEA did not fly to Australia.
