Picture scanned from a negative, photographer unknown, taken on the occasion of the only visit to Sydney by TAA's first Viscount. It was chance for airport staff to become familiar with the new aircraft. But VH-TVA never entered service and was lost in a training accident at Mangalore on October 31. The building behind the aircraft was built in the 1930s as a combined terminal and control tower. It remained in existence into the 21st century, its façade hidden by progressive expansions of what is now a section of Terminal 3. Negative held by Bill Gray.
