The Monegeeta Monster on Film

We are lucky that some very rare colour film of the DCA Experimental Fire Tender, known as the Monegeeta Monster, survives in the CAHS collection. The film was taken at a December 1955 demonstration of the Monster's capabilites for VIPs at RAAF Laverton, Vic. The aircraft is ex-RAF Avro Lincoln RF423.
