Photo Comment

Built to an RAF order as WB659. Sold to Australia and became one of two Chippies with the Broken Hill Aero Club, registered VH-BAD on 9 November 1956. Sold in 1966, it was re-registered VH-UPD and passed through a succession of owners in South Australia until damaged in an accident in 1983. Rebuilt and moved to NSW in 1988 where it remains with the same owner. Seen here at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Chippie Rally.
