FNQ Yestayear Images - July 1994

Stopping over from PPT on 16th was DC-8-72F F-RAFF.
This was probably the last French military aircraft transitting Australia for the next two years as a result of the suspension of French military traffic, due to the resumption of nuclear testing in their Pacific Territories. The regular C-160 transit flights to and from Noumea substituted POM for their tech stop. In 1996 following the French Government's signing of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, thereafter normal transit rights were reinstated.


Thanks to GAFLIKS for providing this Yestayear report.
