Today (Thurs.16.10.14) is the 50th anniversary of the arrival in Australia of the first B727s, one each for Ansett & TAA. I am putting up B727 photos with aviation groups. Here are crops from one of them.
Adelaide (SA). Sat.19.5.79.
Airstair on what looks to be a Bedford J.
A tug for baggage trailers.
An identified Mobil fuel truck.
The last 727 in passenger service (an Ansett one) was withdrawn in Apr.97. I was on one of the ceremonial flights out of Melbourne to mark the event.

Thank you for that one.

Interesting international badge on the 1927 (L/H side) but the guards look more like chev. Colin did you get any pictures of the one.

I'm guessing that this is over 35 years old. I have no idea of make or model.

I drove one of those for Mt buller transport on weekends carting water all over the Mansfield district, 6 inline GM screamer, flat at 70kmh, left hand hook, drop into reverse and engages 6x6!
Bloody thing would go anywhere 8-) 8-) 8-)

One day took the girlfriend (now wife of 25 years) to jamieson to deliver a load, filled up at the stand pipe in mansfield and proceeded to head to jamieson, about 10 kms into the trip, bride says "there's water coming out the back" I says "no problem darlz, just runnin out of the top overflow"
Bout 10 kms later she says "its still running out"
I pull up for a look and water is pouring out the suction hose on the pump pickup (for river filling) some bloody goose had knocked off the foot valve!

I lost 2/3rds of the load, had to back it into the jamieson river to refill the tank ;D

That was the start of her being right all the time :o

Loved it :)
1418 Benz now really impressing the bride :-)
