Photo Comment

VH-AVS was one of several Aerostars used to deliver documents from Sydney to rural bank branches. The ability to safely remove satchels from the baggage locker of an Aerostar without shutting down the engines was an advantage in the quick turnarounds needed. In the late afternoon the aircraft retraced their route collecting the day's business papers.
