Spazsinbad already has those pics!

dunno who the other guy is

over Canning Bridge heading east


Amberley '87


Perth




Pearce early 90's?


these guys flew in to Pearce from Japan one quiet Sunday afternoon..I was the bored Flow controller and via "Arrivals" asked the Prowlers if they could jam our radar for a demo. Holy crap a minute later we had long strobes, false targets and all sorts of crap on our screens... the funny thing about it was that I forgot to mention the exercise to our radar technician who in a panic from all sorts of monitoring alarms burst into the control room wondering why we weren't screaming at the loss of our radar...ahh they were the days.. be put up against the wall and shot if we did that now

Lloyd's F28 VH LAR went into service with Ansett after they bought out Lloyd Aviation Jet Charter. Ansett subsequently dropped it off jacks in Melborne I think and it was a write off.
The the registration(LAR) went to a Dash 8 -100 in Skywest service on the Troughton Island run out of Darwin. This aircraft is now P2-NAX in operation for Ok-tedi mining in PNG

I'm guessing those Wacketts (hoping CS is right there) are over/near Toc or maybe even Deni in NSW or may around Sale/Bairnsdale Vic???
