Photo Comment

VH-FRG was withdrawn from use in 1995. However, the aircraft suffered major damage at Braeside Station, Western Australia, on January 13, 1990 and the decision to withdraw it from use might have been a decision not to repair it. -RFG had flown into the roof of a large farm building, tearing off part of the undercarriage and picking up a several sheets of iron sheeting. The pilot recovered and landed on the airstrip.
