The first Fu-24 with its open cockpit. By October 1956 it had been enclosed. The basic aircraft remains in production albeit highly developed with a turboprop engine producing more than three times the power of the initial version.

ZK-BHG had a long career. It was upgraded to a FU-24-950M in 1978. It became an engine test bed in 2000. It was fitted with a Ford V8 that initially drove the prop with a chain drive, later replaced by a gearbox. For a while it had twin main wheels. The next engine was a Walter M-601 turboprop before it was withdrawn from use in 2013 (registration cancelled in 2014).

The first production FU-24, first flown in the US rather than New Zealand. Delivered with an open cockpit that had been replaced by September 1956. ZK-BDS was rebuilt and upgraded several times. At the time it was destroyed in a crash at Matawai on September 20, 2003 (yes, 49 years of ag work) it was an FU-24-950M with almost twice the power it had in 1954.

Mal Mitchell's photo of VH-BOM taking off from a farm airstrip is a rare photo of an aircraft on the register for only 88 days. It crashed near Armidale, NSW, on September 10, 1957. Within weeks it had been replaced by a second FU-24 VH-BOM (c/n 59). The earlier aircraft can be distinguished from its successor by its checkerboard rudder and wingtips.
