Rare 47 year old image of TAA's First F-27 Friendship, VH-TFA 'Charles Todd' (Del: June 1959), on static display at an Airshow at Avalon in 1961. The aircraft was acquired from Holland as PH-FAG as an F-27-100, and originally named 'Dirk Hartog'. After conversion to an F-27-200 she was re-named 'Charles Todd'. She was re-named 'Lae' in Dec 1970, and went to Air New Guinea in Nov 1973, and became P2-TFA in Feb 1974. Apologies for low image quality. This is my oldest photo on this website.
