It is unclear if the Ampol logo was a race sponsor or the sponsor for the shark patrols VH-SHC carried out over Melbourne beaches. By 1988 it was operating tourist flights from a bush strip in the Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania. It crashed in the park on February 9, 1992. The wreckage was sold in Germany.
No, not BA's response to falling passenger numbers on the Kangaroo Route in 1976 but its sponsorship of entry 261 in the Benson and Hedges Air Race. A year after the race -RWH was still in this livery but without the race stickers.
