Still in its South African Air Force markings, this Bosbok took part in the flying displays at the Wide Bay International Airshow. Forty Bosboks were delivered to the SAAF during 1972-74, this one being '951'. Following retirement, it was civil registered in South Africa as ZU-ACS on 20 October 1992. Sold in Australia it was re-registered VH-BTZ on 23 August 2001, initially based near Melbourne. It's currently Queensland-based.
