Taken from cockpit of another Caribou soon after takeoff from Richmond (YSRI). The plan was to rendezvous with a formation of all 24 RAAF C-130 Hercules in service at the time. In a rare event, all would be at Richmond that day. The scheme was thwarted when one was called away for a sea search. The remaining 23 performed a flyover of Sydney Harbour with the two Caribous as photo platforms
