Photographer's Remark

Built for the US Navy in 1954 as Bu 138122. One of a few Trojans transferred in the late '60s to the US Army as a flight test chase plane, but retained its Navy serial. Allotted to the National Museum of Naval Aviation in 1984 but sold to the civil market and registered N28RF on 6 November 1985. Shipped to Australia in March 2008 and registered VH-FNO(4) on 13 August that year. Assembled at Toowoomba and currently resident in NSW, it's seen here at the Wings Over the Illawarra 2016 airshow.
