Williamtown ATC: No.
Sydney ATC: Possible but, unlikely.
Air Traffic Controller Officers and Radio Technical Officers of the era confidently suggest radar tracks were not recorded in 1981 at the Sydney Area Approach Control Centre (AACC).
Despite this, there has been some evidence that radar recorders existed at Sydney and another AACC by 1981. Research is continuing.
Even if there was radar track recording capability at Sydney AACC during the accident, it is unlikely that recordings will be located. Nevertheless, research will be conducted into this area.
