Photo Comment

Built to a 1941 order as a PT-17 (A75N1) model, USAAC serial 41-8001. Subsequent history unclear, but came to Australia where it was acquired by present owner's father as a wreck in 2007 and restored at Jandakot, replacing the 220hp Continental R-670 engine by a 300hp Lycoming R-680 making it an A75L300. Registered VH-RPS 19 August 2008. Re-registered VH-EEY on 02 December 2010. Ferried Jandakot to Echuca for the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's National Fly-in where it won a well-deserved Grand Champion award. Then ferried to a new home at Cessnock.
