Pilatus PC-6B Turbo-Porter

A14-687 sn 687 173 (General) Support Squadron Oakey 1989
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 195 m and land within a distance of 130 m while carrying a payload of 1,200 kg. 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 (5,750 m), 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.,

A14-687 was delivered 13th January 1969 to 1st Aviation Regiment at RAAF Base Amberley. Shown here with unoficial squadron hornet tail badge. The quadron radio callsign was “Hornet” at the time. The callsign was changed from “Hornet” to “Redback” after the introduction of the F/A-18 Hornet, to avoid confusion and some consternation about the F/A-18s that appeared to be doing 120 kts in the circuit!.
