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.

While still registered the Drover has not flown in many years. First registered to Flying Doctors in 1964 then went to VP-PAF in 1967 but returned to VH-FDU in 1972. It was WFU in 1980 and restored in 1991. It is based at Caboolture and is displayed in the open there. See interior detail photos.
