According to my mother, my first flights were MEL-ADL return when I was around 18 months old (though it may have been a little later). Now, while my first memory is of sitting aboard the MEL-ADL flight, naturally I cannot recall what airline or aircraft I flew in. I would really like to know!
I believe I flew on TAA (Trans Australian Airlines), although Ansett is the other option.
I'm guessing a 727 could be one possibility - but is there anyone out there with better knowledge of MEL-ADL operations at the time?

I have a Mar 1976 TN timetable in front of me, and it shows all flights being serviced by the DC9 with the exception of the flights that extended on to DRW (Flt 24 Mon and Thu and Flt 38 Fri) these flights on the days indicated being serviced by a 727. If you wish I can scan this timetable then email it to you.
remember the t shirt "I own an airline"on the front - "qantas" on the back
