This is actually the second Harvard to carry the reg VH-ZRO. Built by Canadian Car and Foundry for the RCAF as 20362 and taken on charge as late as 19 August 1952. Sold March 1968 and converted to a replica 'Zero' for the film Tora! Tora! Tora!, registered N15798. Sold after the film in 1971 and flew in the USA and UK until 1998. Exported to New Zealand as ZK-ZRO until exported again to Australia in October 2000. Registered VH-ZRO on 17 August 2001 and currently based in Brisbane. It really looks the part
