Neptune A89-278 awaits its turn to display at an open day at Richmond on 12 April 1975. The aircraft had departed Townsville on 1 April 1975 accompanied by A89-279 for air displays at Pearce, Laverton, Fairbairn and Richmond before returning to Townsville on 14 April. All displays were flown in A89-278 commanded by Flt Lt P.A. Ware with A89-279 providing the static display. This image well illustrates the gloss finish of the Light Gull Grey colour scheme. A89-278 was test flown at 2AD Richmond on 13 February 1975 so it is likely that the aircraft was repainted at that time.Picture: Eric Favelle (AI399)
