Photo Comment

VH-ATQ was sold in New Zealand in 1996 as ZK-JGJ. The annual Bathurst 500 car race brought aircraft from all over Australia. A shortage of accommodation saw many charter pilots camp by their aircraft and socialise at the aero club rather go to the Mount Panorama track with their passengers.
