Photographer's Remark

This 1960 Aero Commander has had an interesting life. Originally registered in South Africa as ZS-CPG, it then transferred to the Kenyan Register as VP-KPY (later 5Y-KPY when Kenya changed from the British colonial series). In 1975 it came to Australia, being registered on 24 October that year. It's currently based at Melton and did a number of pleasure flights during the Houdini-Centenary Air Show - seen here backtracking after one of them.
