Douglas C-54 Skymaster (VH-PAF)


Phil Vabre photo of the DC-4 at Essendon Victoria on 10 8 1996 - normal day for Melbourne - wet - but makes for nice photos. Now VH-EAY with HARS at Wollongong NSW being restored to fly. Previously N9013V and 44-9126.

Great photo of the Skymaster! Essendon code is YMEN.

Thanks Chris - slip of finger or more likely slip of brain....
Cheers Ian. I find those ICAO codes to be a minefield. e.g. Camden is YSCN while Canberra is YSCB. Non tower Scone is YSCO. Wagga (not tower controlled since the late 1980s) is still YSWG but nearby Albury is YMAY due to being a current tower controlled airport and also situated in the Melbourne FIR. Alphabet soup!

Even worse when you are a pilot mate looking at ERSA

Thanks for your reply
