This DVD starts off with our Aerolineas Argentinas MD-83 flight from the Buenos Aires Aeroparque down to to Ushuaia. We board the aircraft on the apron just before sun up, and enjoy an early daylight departure from the Aeroparque. Our four hour flight south to Ushuaia passes quickly and we're soon on final approach to the Ushuaia Airport in Tierra Del Fuego.
Ushuaia has to be one of the most scenic airport settings in the world. Neslted against mountains on the Magellin Straight at the southern most tip of South America, the towering snow-capped mountains set against the open water and the clear air makes this a very special airport for aircraft enthusiasts and spotters. This DVD shows our landing and taxi-in to the gate from the aircraft cabin along with exterior footage as well.
After an introduction to the sights of picturesque Ushuaia, we spend time at the spectacular Ushuaia airport. The Lineas Aereas Del Estado - LADE Fokker F27 and the weekly Aerolineas Argentinas 747-400 flight from Buenos Aires are the star attractions along with Aerolineas Argentinas MD-83 action and LAN’s A320 service. We then board our Aerolineas MD-83 for the flight back to the Aeroparque in Buenos Aires. The DVD includes the taxi and departure at Ushuaia as well as AEP video action!
Is this Angus or Malcolm Young of AC-DC fame in this advert? Where's Bon Scott? TAA Boeing 727-076 TV Commercial 1972. Apparently the chap in the TAA commercial is
John Farnham (Johnny Farnham, as he was known back then). His website is here:
He had a huge hit in the late '60s with a song called 'Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)'.
He was dubbed 'King Of Pop' for years.
He's a bit of an icon in Oz these days.
Though not that well known overseas, he did front the Little River Band for a while.
Back then Qantas only flew international routes, while TAA (the government airline)
was in competition with Ansett Airlines on domestic routes.
BTW AC/DC started putting their act together in 1973 in the Melbourne suburb of Balwyn!
Cheers and happy flying videos, from Mark Jones, Warilla, NSW, Australia.
