60th Anniversary of Operation Sinbad

Covers 4a & 4b
$15

Operation Sinbad: On July 4th 1948 Charles Scoble, diesel engineer at ANARE Station, Macquarie Is., died in a tragic skiing accident. The RAAF was asked to fly a replacement engineer to the Island. On August 4th 1948 at 0513 AEST a PBY-5A (amphibian) Catalina No. A24-104 took off from Hobart for Macquarie Is. On board were a crew of 7, (Sqn Ldr RHS Gray Flight OIC; Flt Lt AE Delahunty Flight Captain), the replacement engineer, TF Keating, and a quantity (100 lbs) of philatelic and other mail. The Catalina touched down in Buckles Bay at 1250 AEST and taxied close to a sandy beach. With the aid of two anchors and running engines the aircraft was held into the wind while Gray, Keating and the mail were unloaded into a waiting boat. After Gray returned with mail from expeditioners and some of the philatelic covers cancelled with the Macquarie Is. postmark the aircraft took off at 1430 AEST with the aid of JATO rockets. Because of strong westerly winds there was insufficient fuel for the aircraft to reach Hobart so it was diverted to RNZAF Base Wigram where it arrived after a flight of 8 hours. The Catalina left Wigram at 0847 NZST on 6th August and flew direct to RAAF Base Rathmines, NSW, where it arrived after a flight of 13 hours 15 minutes.

Featuring a se-tenant pair of 50¢ 2006 Aviation in the AAT stamps.
