Engine change | Dakota A65-94 | RAF Changi March 1962
With the help of a crane, Aussie Dakota A65-94 from Butterworth, gets an engine change in one of the two Western Dispersal maintenance bays in March 1962. A65-94 was one of the three Dakotas, along with A65-73 and A65-119, operated from RAAF Butterworth’s Canberra Squadron, No 2 and was used for general communications duties, often passing through Changi, although not usually requiring an engine change there. Dakotas, in there various versions, which had at sometime almost always been ex-USAF C-47’s, were still the most common visiting aircraft in the Far East in the early 1960’s.
