Rare 35 year old image of near new TAA DC-9-31 VH-TJU at Melbourne's then new Tullamarine Airport in 1972. Named 'John Roe' VH-TJU was the last DC-9 acquired by TAA (Del: 14Oct1971). She was Sold to Airborne Express as N942AX on 30Nov1989. (VH-TJU collided with a Fuel Tanker while taxying at Brisbane Airport on 28Sep86, damaging 2 metres of the Port wing at the wingtip.) My first flight in a TAA DC-9 was from Mascot Sydney to Essendon in VH-TJP, on 29Apr1970. Low res photo.
