Photo Comment

This normally Perth-based Metro is being used by Toll Express for their night freight runs for a while. It started life in 1981 as N1012U with Consolidated Airways. Passing through several operators, it then went to France in October 1988 as F-GFVS with Air Taxis Services, then Air Limousin. Sold back to the USA as N20849 in November 1989, then to Australian operator Transair as VH-TFQ on 4 February 1994. Passed through several hands to Casair, who re-registered it VH-OGX on 5 May 2008.
