Photo Comment

An ex Adastra aerial survey aircraft. In 1976 it was painted as A16-123 although in RAAF service it had been A16-105. A plan to change the registration to VH-FXF, to match the codes, never happened. After the picture was taken, it flew only a handful of times, mainly ferry flights from museum to museum. The last flight was in 1985 to Wangaratta. In 2001 the Australian War Memorial bought the aircraft and restored it for static display as A16-105.
