DC-4 VH-EDA Pacific Trader suffered a nosewheel collapse at Port Moresby on 6 February 1969. The aircraft was returning a group of 60 children from Nauru to boarding schools in Australia when hydraulic failure on approach to Port Moresby necessitated an emergency landing when the nosewheel could not be fully lowered.
