VH-TRM was wrecked at Schofields, Sydney, on April 7 1979, when the banner it was towing failed to release and the aircraft pitched into the ground inverted. The pilot and passenger survived with minor injuries. The PL-12U was a utility version of the PL-12 cropduster with cargo and passenger space in place of the chemical hopper.
