VH-NMO Grumman G-111 Albatross (cn G-464) of Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd at Jandakot Airport – Mon 3 June 2013
VH-NMO Grumman G-111 Albatross (cn G-464) of Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd at Jandakot Airport – Mon 3 June 2013
This was the last Grumman Albatross built. A total of 418 Grumman Albatross aircraft were built between 1947 and 1961.
It was built as a military Grumman UF-2 under the Military Aid Program (MAP), as the last of six ordered for the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF). For contractual purposes, it was allocated US Navy serial number 148329. It was delivered to the JMSDF on 5 May 1961, and allocated the JMSDF serial number 9056 – it also wore the US Navy serial 148329 on the rear fuselage. After 1962, it was re-designated as a Grumman HU-16D Albatross. See photo of the aircraft with the JMSDF in 1976: http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/2770.jpg
In the late 1970s/early 1980s, Grumman bought 57 ex-military Albatrosses for conversion to civil G-111 Albatross configuration, certified to conduct airline and charter operations. Around 1980, 9056/148329 was sold and registered N88999 – see 1980s photo: http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/2831.jpg .
In 1981, it was rebuilt by Grumman as a civilian G-111 Albatross, at a cost of US$1.2 million. Although Grumman thought that there was a market for 200 G-111s, only 13 were converted – 12 for Resorts International and one (this aircraft) for Conoco Oil/ Pelita Air Service. It can seat 23 but is certified to carry up to 28 people.
The aircraft was registered in Indonesia as PK-PAM with Pelita Air Service, flying on behalf of the Conoco oil company. It was based in Singapore, and used in support of offshore drilling in a 28-seat configuration.
On 6 March 1992, the aircraft was registered N26PR to Paragon Ranch, Broomfield, Colorado. By 1996, N26PR was owned by Mirabella Yachts Inc, Palm Beach, Florida – Sep 1996 photo: http://www.abpic.co.uk/photo/1064553/
On 8 December 1997, Mirabella Yachts reregistered the aircraft as N42MY. It was based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Florida and at Fort Pierce Airport, Florida. Here is a 2003 photo: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Grumman-G-111-Albatross/0457395/L/&sid=aac86aa3f09e8f84dbe6e378e17e8e90
On 21 January 2009, N42MY was registered to Sherman Aircraft Sales and advertised for sale – initially at $995,000, and later at US$795,000, based at West Palm Beach Airport, Florida, with a total of 4,433 flying hours.
In March 2012, N42MY was acquired by Australian businessman Mack McCormack, but registered to the Bank of Utah as trustee. It was flown to Salt Lake City, Utah, for inspections and repainting. It then flew to North County Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida and on 25 March 2012, it flew to the Port of Palm Beach at Lake Worth Inlet to be loaded onto the ship MV Suomigracht for transport to Australia. Photos of N42MY being loaded aboard: http://www.superyacht-australia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Sevenstar.png ).
It was shipped to Newcastle, NSW, arriving on 20 April 2012, and was flown to Newcastle Airport. On 23 April 2012, the aircraft flew from Bankstown to Sydney Harbour, where it landed and water-taxied past the Opera House to the former flying boat base at Rose Bay, before taking off again and returning to Bankstown.
On 25-26 April 2012, it flew across to Perth Airport. On 27 April 2012, N42MY took off from Perth Airport, flew along the Swan River, and ten minutes later landed and took off in Matilda Bay. Matilda Bay was once the base for US Navy and RAAF Catalina flying boats during World War Two. N42MY then flew to Rottnest Island and landed in Thompson Bay, then took off and flew to RAAF Base Pearce.
Mr McCormack planned to base the Albatross in Broome and use the aircraft to fly tourist and charter flights in and around the Kimberley region of Western Australia, including the Horizontal Waterfalls, Montgomery Reef, Prince Region and off the coast at Rowley Shoals.
In February 2013, it was reported in the Geraldton Guardian newspaper that Catalina Airlines was to begin flying boat flights departing from Perth’s Swan River to the Abrolhos Islands off the coast of Geraldton commencing from April 2013. Costing was estimated to be around A$1000 per person, and operations were to be expanded into the Kimberley region later. The aircraft conducted some promotional flights from Geraldton to the Abrolhos Islands in February. However, since then the aircraft has been parked at Jandakot Airport.
On 16 April 2013, it was registered as VH-NMO to Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd.

Seen here being towed to T4 at 08:17 by a Douglas-Kalmar TBL-600 Tugmaster. Towbarless tractors do not use a towbar, and instead scoop up the nose wheel and lift it off the ground, allowing the tug itself to steer the aircraft, providing better control of the aircraft, higher towing speeds, and no need for anyone to be in the flight deck.
The aircraft departed Perth at 09:03 as QF576 to Sydney.

VH-FNA Fokker 50 (cn 20106) of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (formerly Skywest), named “Rockingham Beach”, at Perth Airport - Mon 3 June 2013
VH-FNA Fokker 50 (cn 20106) of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (formerly Skywest), named “Rockingham Beach”, at Perth Airport – Mon 3 June 2013.
Flight XR102 from Geraldton, on final approach to Runway 03 at 08:07.
This aircraft was flown from Perth via Alice Springs to Townsville on 25 February 2013 and was repainted all-white with no titles, but still had the rudder painted in Skywest colours. The takeover of Skywest by Virgin Australia was still awaiting some regulatory approvals, so it could not be painted in Virgin Australia colours at that time. VH-FNA returned to Perth on 11 March 2013, and re-entered service. On 20 April 2013, it was again flown Perth-Alice Springs-Townsville and became the first Skywest Fokker 50 to be painted in Virgin Australia colours. It returned to Perth via Alice Springs on 26 April 2013, and now wears the name “Rockingham Beach” (it previously wore the name “City of Albany” when in Skywest colours).
