Well it is near the ground run up bay not the taxi way.
You would have been standing close to Careflight jet hangar when you took the photo
It's smack on the taxiway line heading down to Westwing.

Look close and you can see feet and the end of the tail stand.
Good luck next medical...

"Start from the top".
"Is that a tail stand?"
"No, it's a Q, you're reading a letter chart Mr Blackhand."

What's the thing sticking up in the air on the starboard wing is what I want to know. Or is it the (very high) tail of another aicraft which is blocked out by the 208?

Problem solved

.When your office in deep within a grid locked city and your main reason for existence is an airfield, a long, long way from there. This is a must have item when you charge the client $2.00 a minute travelling time.


Time saver.

Sorry Mr 'K',

You're in a 'grid locked city' = Control Zone!!

"Clearance NOT avbl, remain outside Controlled Airspace.....Area QNH 1013..." (Area QNH, 1013 = 'F.O'.....)

Finally getting around to scanning 60 years of colour slides to digital.

This one at ADL somewhere around 1965 +/-

Perutz C18 emulsion hasn't aged well, but considering this was taken close to sunset, it's probably close to how it was.

FOR - a gorgeous photo! Can't you just hear those Darts?

This is VH-RMP (originally Butler's VH-BAT), sister of the ill-fated RMQ (crashed at Port Hedland).

Thank you Dora-9 for the additional information.

My interest in specific fleet aircraft and histories started with the first 727s so I was unaware of the rego of this particular Viscount. I'll post a few others taken in the same era later.

FOR - I look forward to seeing more photos of this era.

I had a rush of blood there in order to respond quickly, a roundabout way of saying that I was wrong. Actually RMP's "sister" (the other ex-Butler V-747 Viscount) was VH-RMO (initially BUT), grounded in 1970 followng the RMQ accident. RMQ was actually an ex-TAA V-720 Viscount, previously TVB.

The second of TAA's "Whispering T Jets" (VH-TJB) Possibly taken around 1965 at ADL.

Convair 440 (VH-BZF) at ADL - mid 60's again
I am trying to decide whether radials sound better than Darts .... ?

Radial engines make music; Darts scream!

Who can forget watching the CV-440 starting, as the entire aeroplane disappears inside a great cloud of blue smoke?

Fabulous photos, FOR!

Thanks Full opposite....many of us old timers are really enjoying your photos. I guess you must have been employed at Adelaide. The quality and clarity of the images that are half a century old,is really remarkable. Please continue with zeal and gusto.

If two radials sound nice, then four must be better (and it was)
Douglas DC-6B (VH-INH) at Adelaide - again mid 60's


This photo demonstrates the limitations confronting the amateur photographer at that time. Film was expensive so extreme economy was enforced, and fixed focus lenses were the order of the day. This time the aircraft was too close to fit in the frame so it was necessary to click on what one was offered.

In this respect it's easier these days, memory cards are inexpensive and zoom lenses are standard. The downside is that it can be very difficult to get relatively unfettered photographic access to aircraft as one did then. We still keep trying however ....
