FNQ Yestayear Images - August 1993

Ukraine registered AN-124 UR82066 enroute Houston to Perth with industrial equipment dropped in for a tech stop on the 14th.  The departure was off RW33 and it was obviously heavy with a very late rotation.  The nose on image was taken from the old ITB gallery, sadly soon to be closed as the building was extended.


On 23rd, former PNGDF C-47 P2-003 was noted with temporary reg VH-PTE endorsed over the serial, ready for its imminent onward ferry south.

A fairly rare sight in Australia taken in August at Mareeba was thsi shot of the former Talair (PNG) fleet of
turbine aircraft in storage awaiting disposal. Visible are six (6) Banderiante's and eleven (11) Twin Otters.


Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl arrived 27th on Luftwaffe A310 10+21 for a short visit. He was met by the Australian PM, whose Falcon can be seen in the background.  The Chancellor departed for Wellington on the 31st.

Thanks to GAFLIKS for providing this Yestayear report.
