Given that the GA fleet is ageing, and the average age of aircraft seems to be 40 years, what happened 40 years ago that a whole fleet of aircraft were brought into Aus?

And whatever "it" was, why can't "it" happen again?
A pity Gaunty isn't still around on these boards because I suspect he would be able to answer that quite easily. Seem to remember he once posted on that subject.

Just a thought; Torres may be able to explain just as well.

Believe that it had a lot to do with being able to do a tax write off on the purchase price of a new aircraft.
