Timetable Effective 18 February 1974.


It is said that Burnett Airways' very first timetable was typed as a favour by the secretary at the Bundaberg Aero Club. This undated timetable for the Ansett Cunnamulla route was apparently typed and subsequently hand amended by the Goondiwindi Travel Centre.


Timetable Effective 26 October 1975.



This advertisement is believed to be from an event programme circa 1970 showing Cherokee Six VH-RJV outside the Bundaberg Airport terminal. The Ansett Friendship is facing in the opposite direction to its normal parking position so it is surmised that the Cherokee got there first.(Contributed by Andy Anderson)
