Rare 25 year old image of TAA DC-9 VH-TJT (Del: July 1971)docked at Sydney (Domestic) Airport in 1982. My first flight in a TAA DC-9 was from Mascot Sydney to Essendon in VH-TJP, on 29Apr1970. I was waiting for my bag, having just arrived from Canberra in VH-TJT (0.4 hrs). The aircraft is in the new 'orange/blue stripe' livery, as is the TAA Airbus A300B4-203 taxying past in the background. Maintenance staff didn't like DC-9s. They went unserviceable so infrequently, the LAMEs had problems getting enough experience on DC-9 systems to stay qualified on type!
