Photo Comment

Looking much nicer with a fresh re-paint than when I photographed her 2 years ago! Registered new as G-APYP on 8 Mar 60. Imported into Australia for MMA and registered VH-MMP(2) 'RMA Pilbara' on 3 Feb 64. Used for charter work. In '69 it was due to charter for Ansett Airlines of PNG, but broke down at Horn Is on the ferry flight to New Guinea. After remaining there for 5 weeks, ferried to Bankstown, then Moorabbin. Sold to Motif Air, Melbourne, 12 Jul 70. Eventually became derelict at Bankstown.
