Matt Denning's second, brand-new Boomerang restoration was on static display at the Wide Bay International Airshow. The aircraft is said to be the former A46-63, which crashed at Cape York, Qld, on 24 August 1943 after only 4 months service with 84 Squadron. The restoration included the addition of a second seat, although you wouldn't really know it to look at. The first post-restoraton flight was at Caboolture on 26 June 2009, a week before this photo was taken.
