Rare low res 1964 photo of the RAAF's second (and oldest) Caribou aircraft (Callsign VM-JMB), which was Delivered to 38 Squadron, Richmond, in March 1964. The new aircraft was displayed at the 1964 RAAF Laverton Airshow, one month after the RAAF Transport Flight Vietnam (RTFV, later 35 Sqn) became the First RAAF Unit deployed to Vietnam on 08Aug1964. This aircraft is still in Service, with 38 Squadron Townsville, where I also photographed her on 27Sep2009. She is about to retire after 45 years Service.

Priceless picture. The same airplane, captured by the same spotter twice in two different years which are 45-year apart. A great honor for a senior spotter!
