VH-IXP was damaged when it jumped the chocks while being hand-started in March 1974. For over 2 years it sat at Yemnu, its wings stored under a house. The instrument panel was hacked out with a machete and other parts went missing including the windows. When the decision was made to repair IXP, it was reassembled and temporary repairs carried out to allow it to be ferried to Goroka, there being no roads.. The ferry permit issued at the end of August 1976. It would be 1982 before the Cessna was restored to the register as P2-SER. Photo by Ian Alexander.

Photo by Suresh Syed, of Wellington, NZ of the fibreglass Hawker Hurricane mounted on a plinth at MOTAT. It is modelled on the aircraft flown by Sir Keith Park who was leader of 11 Group, RAF during the Battle of Britain. 11 Group was tasked with defending London and south-east England. Park, a New Zealander, returned to his homeland after the war and died in 1975. The code OK-1 is Sir Keith Park's personal code, not a squadron code.

Photographed by TAA over Westernport Bay, probably in December 1954 ahead of VH-TVC's entry into service on the 23rd of that month. TAA's first Viscount, VH-TVA, had been the intended star of its promotional material (using photos from Vickers) but it was written off in a fatal training accident on October 31 before entering service. -TVC arrived in Melbourne about the time the 2nd aircraft, VH-TVB, operated the airline's first Viscount service after a period of intense crew training. -TVC was destroyed on November 30, 1961 when it broke up in a storm over Botany Bay. It was with Ansett-ANA at the time.
