The modified windscreen was to observe missile launches.At the time of the photo it had been sold by the RAF and was unregistered. In August 1969 it became VH-EQB with Jetair. Following the collapse of Jetair, it went to Laos as aid. The modified windscreen was retained..
VH-AIA was the first Islander sold in Australia. Britten-Norman hoped Australia would be a major market for its aircraft, particular taking into account the then territory of Papua New Guinea. And they not to be disappointed. In 1979 -AIA went to PNG (as P2-ISR) where Islanders had become a vital part of local air services. Photo scanned from a poor colour neg.
Owned by TAA. Leased to Countryair to operate Coralair services to Great Keppel Island on behalf of TAA. Countryair titles on tail. Picture taken at old Eagle Farm Airport soon after VH-AZS was returned to TAA.
Ansett-MAL titles have been removed in preparation for a ferry flight to the US where it became N11HB. Ex-CF-SOD, it was delivered to Ansett-MAL in 1965. Restrictions placed on its STOL operations in Papua New Guinea meant the airline could not exploit its full potential.
