FNQ Yestayear - January 1995

FNQ Yestayear - January 1995
 
Three of the four stranded airframes (2 x C402, 1 x BN-2 and 1 x Beech Baron) from the Lakunai airstrip in Rabaul (see Y'year for Sep 94-3rd  image down) following the volcanic eruption, were eventually shipped to Madang, where they were photographed in a sad state in Jan 95.  It is not known the fate of the other C402 (presumably scrapped on site).



The former Lakunai strip as it is today 'rabnow1' (pic Tony Skelton)

Mid Jan a rare Ukrainian registered TU-154 of BSL airline was parked on the GA ramp during its stopover.  It was transporting a Kyrgystan Arts group. (pic supplied).
