I was about to make a reply on a now closed thread, and have posted the same on the TAA & the DC9 thread.....who has a link to that video of the tail mounted camera on the TAA 727, fantastic footage, nothing on todays trickery perhaps, but brilliant stuff in its day, over the red centre, the Reef, alongside 'The Goldie'.......has anyone found a link to that?? It loooked especially good when you saw it at the movies....on the big screen, right before the Val Morgan AD :} ??? Priceless AD that 'un...:ok:

TN's Allan Searle was involved (may even have been the project manager) for the photography as I recall. Last I heard he lives in Melbourne. If you can track him down he may well have all sorts of stuff in the archives relating to the advert and work up.

Did you look? :ugh:

Are you talking about THIS (http://www.pprune.org/aviation-history-nostalgia/355897-taa-dc-9-a-35.html) thread?

You could try the TAA Museum near the Sim centre at Essendon; they're converting a lot of archive material to DVD.

thanks for the little trip down memory lane with that youtube link.

i remember the ad as a young kid. even then i was already convinced i was destined to fly. seeing the first officer kick the tyres, catching the crew bus with hosties that were/are eye candy, rotating a new widebody out of tsv, flying out over the harbour and forgetting its nadp1.

all the great imagery that cements a young blokes dream to make it.

Love the pre-flight. I wonder how long that took to get approved:rolleyes:

YouTube - Ansett Airlines TV Commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go-VBP4OfEQ&feature=related)

I like this one, it was absolutely the last ad campaign Ansett ran, Gary Toomey's last-ditch effort to keep the thing afloat.

According to this website (http://www.aussieairliners.org/scrapbook/b-727/taa727.html), the aircraft with tail mounted camera was VH-TJB (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2852451847/), a 100 series that was retired in the early 80's. Hopefully a video of it will surface soon. Can't believe Youtube doesn't have it; it has many other crappy TAA adds, but not this one!

it was Tango Juliet Bravo that had the camera mounted on the fin - after she was retired.

VH-TJB was designates as a 727-76 - not a 176 for some reason. She was most certainly a 100 series but not a 727-176. I have no idea why, but someone may be able to answer.

I posted a remark in another topic asking for info re an Ansett training video I got my head in back in '91.

One of my catch phrases then, and I am sure it hit the video on Golden Wing/First Class/Business Class was - "Absolutely" - ie: "Can you check my baggage all the way to London?" answer - "Absolutely".

The good and true dudes and dudettes at AN ADL made me very aware of something I had no idea I was doing - as we don't.

So I may be resposible, but take no direct responsilbility for the collapse.

The Toomster should never have plagiarised a simple load controller.

We bite! :E:E

Best all

When I contacted them some time ago, they advised that they had all the tail mounted footage and were working on it. Let's hope so. It was fantastic!

Thanks DogCharlieTree...looking forward to it...in the mean time heres some tail mounted camera footage shot from a foam model Piper Cub at Emerald Lakes, central Gold Coast, could only have dreamt of such technology back when that TN Ad was produced..............

YouTube - 1980 01 04 17 33 20 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5aF9F9aChQ)

FWIW, When the TN Ad was done this was (attached video) the old Surfers Paradise Airfield / Racetrack..........years away from its current development...

Some better footage of the area.....winter 08, the lone high rise building, Royal Pines is approx 22 floors high.........
