Photo Comment

VH-BHG had been on the Australian register since 1955. It became -BHG in 1967 to free up the marks VH-RHG for owner Robert Henry "Bobby" Gibbes , who had a new Twin Comanche. Wing Commander Gibbes was Australia's leading fighter ace of World War II. In 2017 the Saab remained on the register, as did the Twin Comanche.
