Photo Comment

This aircraft presented something of a mystery! Sister-ship VH-YKO was damaged in an accident at Archerfield on 22 Nov 2006. Because the aircraft are used for warbird adventure flights and all the publicity brochures showed VH-YKO, replacement VH-YRO was painted in identical markings, even down to the 'bullet holes' and VH-YKO's cn on the fin! This aircraft was first registered in Australia on 11 July 2006. Incidentally, the fuselage code is the owner's initials.
