A Drover in need of some tender loving care... It carries a fictitious registration (it is in fact ex G-APXX), and it arrived here in 1987. The SWWAPS Museum closed down not long after this photo was taken, in November 2009, and at that time the Drover was dismantled and trucked to Wycombe Air Park, Booker, UK, for temporary storage. On 5 Aug 2013 it moved on to Horizon Aircraft Services at St Athan, and in 2019 it was reportedly transferred to the newly formed South Wales Aviation Museum there.

The then new Drover was used in Queensland to cover for one of TAA Drovers out of service for modifications. It spent the next 10 years being used by the Royal Aero Club of NSW before being sold in the New Hebrides as VQ-FAH in 1965, later VP-PAE when the New Hebrides was given its own register.

VQ-FAS was acquired by New Hebrides Airways from Fiji Airways in 1961, initially as a lease-purchase. This photo is believed to be taken at Suva before the aircraft left for Port Vila. VQ-FAR in the background remained with Fiji Airways. -FAS was reregistered VP-PAC in 1966 but by then it was already being dismantled for spares having run out of hours in August 1965. Allan Walker photo.

The crossed UK and French flags represent the unique status of New Hebrides as a jointly ruled Anglo-French condominium that finally ended on independence in 1980 and the birth of Vanuatu. With no New Hebrides register, the Drover initially carried Fijian registration. In June 1966 -FED became VP-PAD when New Hebrides got its own block within the British Colonial system. It crashed at Tannu Island on October 22, 1966 with the loss of eight lives.
