Photo Comment

One of nine Meta Sokols imported in the early '60s by Dulmison Aircraft, Sydney, most of which were registered in the VH-DU_ block. VH-DUT was registered new on 23 Nov 62 and spent its early life in NSW, then Qld. On 5 Oct 69 it crashed 22 NM SW of Mundubbera, Qld, after an engine failure and was cancelled from the Register. Following a long period of hibernation and restoration, re-registered with its original identity 12 Aug 93 to an owner in SA. Recently re-painted, it is known as the 'Violet Crumble'.
