Owned by the Department of Defence and supported by Tenix LADS Corporation, Aircruising Australia and Executive Airlines, this former East-West Airlines F-27 is the last of its once-ubiquitous breed still flying in Australia. It's now used on hydrography work using the Australian-developed Laser Airborne Depth Sounder.
