VH-DPV / 038 NZAI CT/4A Airtrainer (cn 038) owned by Brian Collingridge at Jandakot Airport – 17 June 2017.
VH-DPV / 038 NZAI CT/4A Airtrainer (cn 038) owned by Brian Collingridge at Jandakot Airport – 17 June 2017.
This aircraft was delivered to the RAAF on 4 June 1975, using ferry registration ZK-EAA. It was allocated RAAF serial A19-038. It was sold on 21 June 1993 and registered VH-DPV, but has retained its RAAF “Fanta can” paint scheme, which also led to the type being nicknamed the “Plastic Parrot”.
The CT/4 was developed in 1972 by New Zealand Aerospace Industries from the Australian-designed and built Victa Aircruiser, which was based on the 1960s Victa Airtourer. Ironically, in 1967 Victa had to sell the manufacturing rights to AESL (later NZAI) in New Zealand due to lack of Australian Government support. Then in 1975, the RAAF ordered 51 CT/4A aircraft as a primary trainer.

The Fokker 100s in Virgin's fleet are in different configurations - this one has a left side galley service door, just ahead of the engine. Swissair was the first airline to order the Fokker 100 and their MD-80 fleet used a rear Economy Class galley which was accessed through a left-side rear service door, which also acted as an additional emergency exit. Swissair asked Fokker to configure the Fokker 100 the same way and Swissair even designed special Fokker 100 catering vehicles to use the tight space between the wing and left engine. Fokker also shortened the flap track of the left wing to make additional space available for this rear catering door. Guinness-Peat Aviaton Leasing ordered 150 more Fokker 100s in this configuration, which were used by a number of airlines. This one was originally delivered to TAM of Brazil. Photo © David Eyre

VH-FNT Fokker 100 (MSN 11461) of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines at Perth Airport – 6 June 2017. Landing on runway 03 at 12:25 pm as VA9224 from Busselton. The Fokker 100s in Virgin's fleet are in different configurations - this one has a left side galley service door, just ahead of the engine. Swissair was the first airline to order the Fokker 100 and their MD-80 fleet used a rear Economy Class galley which was accessed through a left-side rear service door, which also acted as an additional emergency exit. Swissair asked Fokker to configure the Fokker 100 the same way and Swissair even designed special Fokker 100 catering vehicles to use the tight space between the wing and left engine. Fokker also shortened the flap track of the left wing to make additional space available for this rear catering door. Guinness-Peat Aviaton Leasing ordered 150 more Fokker 100s in this configuration, which were used by a number of airlines. This one was originally delivered to TAM of Brazil. Photo © David Eyre
