Essendon Control Tower - 1963
The Terminal building in the background has changed little over the years, however the apron is no longer home to the Electras, Viscounts, Fokker 27s and DC3s of Ansett-ANA and TAA as seen in this photo. Aircraft which can be identified on the original print are DC3 VH-ANP in the foreground, which was an ex-Guinea Airways aircraft and served with Ansett-ANA from February 1960 to June 1967, and the Viscount V.720 behind which is VH-TVF and was on lease from TAA under the 'Two Airline Policy' between March 1960 and April 1967.
