The members might like to know that Caribou 199 has been repainted and is back on display at the entrance to RAAF Townsville.  It has been painted in a scheme reflecting the DHS delivery scheme with the addition of an orange Wallaby on the tail to reflect 35 Squadron’s long service at Townsville.   199 did not serve in Vietnam but was allocated to 35 SQN at Richmond  from 1972 till 1975 and then from the late 80’s onwards was allocated to 35 SQN at different times as aircraft went back to 38 Sqn for major servicings.  199 was painted white in 1975 for UN duties and was  allocated to UNMOGIP in India Pakistan on 3 occasions.
