Notes:

Rare low res view of Qantas A300B4-203 VH-TAC Cn 157 (Delivered: 09Oct1981), being 'turned around' at Gate 23 at Brisbane Domestic Terminal in Dec 1993. The Containerised Baggage System simplified baggage loading/unloading, and reduced 'turn-around' times. Catering supplies are shown being loaded by means of 'Scissor-Lift' Trucks. Note also the 'Priority' Baggage trolley for Business Class Passengers' bags. (Last On, First Off!). The aircraft, named 'John Forrest', had been painted in Qantas livery in 1992. She previously wore the TAA 'Hockey Stick' (Orange/Blue stripe) livery and then Australian Airlines livery. She was formerly Airbus Industrie F-WZMS, First flight 24Aug1981. [My first flight in a TAA A300 was in VH-TAA, from YSSY to YMML (1.0 hrs) on 04Mar1982.] Apologies for quality.
