In the mid 70s I acted as SafetyPilot on two occasions withANAcrews operating a YS11 for us whilst it was evaluated at the direction of RC. In the very early 80s the late Imbakey Okuk directed we pursue the DHC7 to cater for Kundiawa Wapenamunda etc. Up to that time the fleets had been gifted or sold at book value (2xQF707s) The F28-1000s (3 tankers) came ex Air Nauru at Brian Greys unauthorised behest and were ideal with a LCN of 16. In the early 80s we evaluated the Saab 2000 due to a LCN of 16. The Yak42 proposal I believe was only boardroom discussion! The 146 with a LCN of 19 would have been restricted due PCNs around the network in those days. Al, I was only a lowly Fleet Manager but thanks for the beers.
