Help With Dating A Photo Taken At SYD In The '80s

When I was in my early teens I borrowed a camera one Sunday, went to Sydney Airport and took my first aeroplane photos. One of the aircraft I took a photo of was Boeing VC-137B 58-6972. I think it would have been around February-April 1983, or perhaps the same months of 1984. I also took photos of Beechcraft F-90 King Air VH-CRM, Piper Navajo VH-TRP and Fokker Friendship VH-MMS wearing the 'red A in white circle' Ansett c/s. Can anyone date these photos?

mmm VC-137B in SYD in '83 or '84 that would imply a Presidential visit or VP.. Don't think Reagan ever visited, do you have the pics somewhere they can be seen?

Likely some other VIP use doubt that 58-6972 was still used for President in '83/4

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Try posting your request on the message boards of the YSSY enthusiasts site. I think you'd have a better chance of getting a good answer there.

58-6972 was not a presidential aircraft in 1983-4. It was one of the general VIP fleet of the 89th MAW, so more likely it would have brought a parliamentary delegation or senior US government representative other than the president, e.g. Sec. of State.

I don't have a scanner yet, but I am thinking about getting one. Any advice?

I did manage to find a Travel Calendar for Secretary of State George Shultz, but none of the dates matched up with my recollections.
