FNQ Yestayear Images - September 1991

Another of our occasional reports from around the area.  The South Pacific Games were held in Port Moresby during September, which produced an influx of regional carriers operating charter flights from their respective South Pacific nations.  In addition to athletes and media, many supporters also flew in to support their teams.

Listed are the flights involved, but exclude the host airline Air Niugini (PX).  Stock photos of aircraft used in this airlift are illustrated, but not necessarily the actual example used in some instances.  A welcome touch were the flags of nations competing flown above the International ramp at Jacksons Airport (POM) pictured in the lead photo.
