Rare photo. Arrived in Perth ex-USA as N269MA on 25.5.1988. Regd VH-BBA on 10 June 1988. Written-off 4 months after this photo, on 16 Dec 1988. Had mine employees aboard, returning from Christmas party at Bellevue gold mine via Leinster to Kalgoorlie. It stalled & crashed in a thunderstorm near Leonora, WA. Cause thought to be icing and/or severe turbulence. Worst air accident in WA for 20 years, killing all 10 aboard, and worst MU-2 crash in the world, in terms of number of fatalities.
