Vickers Viscount powered by Rolls Royce Engines

Powered by four Rolls Royce Dart turbo-prop engines, the Viscount was widely used in Australia by TAA, Ansett, Butler Air Transport, MacRobertson Miller Airlines and the RAAF.  Seating was usually provided for 47 passengers.  Following a series of accidents, the early Series 700 Viscounts were grounded in Australia, although the later 800 series continued to operate successfully.

Trans Australia Airlines or TAA (renamed Australian Airlines in 1986)

One of the two major Australian domestic airlines between its inception in 1946 and its sale to Qantas in September 1992. As a result of the "COBRA" (or Common Branding) project, the entire airline was rebranded Qantas about a year later with tickets stating in small print "Australian Airlines Limited trading as Qantas Airways Limited" until the adoption of a single Air Operator Certificate a few years later. At that point, the entire airline was officially renamed "Qantas Airways Limited" continuing the name and livery of the parent company with the only change being the change of by-line from "The Spirit of Australia" to "The Australian Airline" under the window line with the existing "Qantas" title appearing above.
