Mandated Airlines Dove VH-MAL (right) at Kainantu, PNG. Harry West, who went on to become a District Commissioner in PNG, remembers taking the photo (circa 1953/54) because it was unusual to have three aeroplanes on the ground together at Kainantu. The date is more likely 1953 given that Dove VH-MAL left PNG late that year. The other aircraft are Qantas Drover VH-EAZ (left) and a Crowley Airways Anson believed to be VH-AQV (centre).
