Pilatus PC-6B Turbo-Porter

A14-652 sn 652 1st Aviation Regiment Oakey 1992
The PC-6 is noted for its Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain - it can take off within a distance of 195m and land within a distance of 130m while carrying a payload of 1,200kg. Thanks to its remarkable STOL performance, the PC-6 holds the world record for highest landing by a fixed wing aircraft, at 18,865 feet (5,750m), on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal. Due to these characteristics, they are frequently used to access short grass mountaintop airstrips in the highlands of Papua Province (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea.

A14-652 was delivered to the Australian Army on 16th January 1968 to 1st Aviation Regiment at RAAF Base Amberley. It was withdrawn from service in November 1992 and allotted to the Museum of Australian Army Flying at Oakey, Qld. Registered VH-OWB. It is shown here as it appeared in 1992 at the end of its service career.
