A TAA - Airlines of New Guinea DC-3 (Named 'Mount Hagen'), at Mount Hagen Airport in 1975. This photo pre-dates Independence. It was still the Territory of Papua New Guinea (TPNG) then. She was A65-29 in RAAF service in WWII. Surprisingly, this aircraft - again wearing the same Registration - is still operating in Australia in 2008. I photographed her at Nowra in May 2005, and did a 0.3 hour Joyflight in this aircraft from Nowra on 26Jan1996. Apologies for grainy Agfa slide film.
