VH-DIS caught at a popular drop-off point for air taxi services. The three terminals, TAA, Ansett and International, were a short walk away and there were no security gates. The demands of airlines for apron space and the redevelopment that followed the opening of the new international terminal in 1970 saw air taxis banished to the distant GA park.
