When one is "Down Under", "Going Big Red" means traveling via GREYHOUND*....... Wink

*Note that the buses wear florescent striping (and hazard lights) for increased visibility while operating on mining sites.

FLXIBLE "down under"........

In 1950, FLXIBLE-style CLIPPERS were built in Australia by ANSAIR, Pty. Ltd.; following the importation of the first FLXIBLE to ANSAIR in 1948.

The prototype and the first two ANSAIR-built CLIPPERS had small windows.

These were operated by PIONEER TOURS, a part of the ANSAIR operation.

ANSAIR built 131 of these buses between 1950 and 1960; most of these coaches were operated by PIONEER*.

Some of the later models had longer "VISICOACH"-style windows.

All, of course, were right-hand drive.......

"NYO"

*Most of the buses in PIONEER's fleet were British-built models.

Between 1974 and 1978, MCI built 29 right-hand drive MC-8's for ANSETT in Australia.

In 1978, they also built 50 MC-8's for freeway express service in Taiwan.......
