Senator HENTY - If the honorable senator places his question on the notice paper, I shall be happy to get a statement for him. I have noticed Press reports that the loading of aircraft operating out of Essendon is limited. I took care to check the figures. I have found that the normal load that has been lifted by aircraft flying from Essendon to Perth has been 138,000 lb. With the arrival of the new Boeing 727's, application was made for a weight of 141,000 lb. The Department of Civil Aviation has limited the load on flights from Melbourne to Perth to 140,000 lb. that being about 2,000 lb. more than the existing maximum load.
