After 34 years of service, this old 727 has been put out for the scrappers, less engines, and she doesn't look too happy about it! Purchased new by Ansett in 1973; registered VH-RMV. 'Retiring' for the first time in '83, took up US registration N275WC. Served with Republic Airlines and Braniff, among others, and had a short spell on the Yugoslav register as YU-AKR in '90 before returning to the USA. Converted to a freighter in '95 and returned to Oz in '02.
