2) Flying There With Airlines of South Australia – produced by Richard Lockheed
(play on computer or DVD Player)
Where is there? This video consists of three separate scenarios, but all have the common
theme of Flying ASA to “there”.
The first segment of the video follows a Fokker F27 Friendship crew on a Flight from Adelaide
to Port Lincoln and Ceduna on the on the far west coast of the state. Captain Jim Evans, who
has flown with ASA for nineteen years, is taking on his role as a check captain overseeing First
Officer, Brian Murray as he heads towards gaining his captaincy
During the return flight on the Ceduna to Port Lincoln leg, time is taken to reflect on Guinea
Airways’ and Airlines of South Australia’s impressive history from the early days in New Guinea,
to the introduction of the Darwin routes, following the war and through to the eighties. Just two
and a half months after the flight to Ceduna took place, it was announced on the 19th of
February 1986 that Airlines of South Australia was finally about to shut down their engines
forever on the 27th of June 1986. The last ever flight for
Airlines of South Australia was flown by Fokker Friendship, VH-FNP, to Port Lincoln and return.
The crew on this flight was Captain Geoff Harris and First Officer, Vince Alfonso. Fortunately
this sad and very historic event was captured on video tape and is available for all to remember
now. Vale Airlines of South Australia.
