Photo Comment

VH-DHN had already been on the Dutch, Italian and UK registers when it was registered in Australia in September 1966. In 1975 corrosion was found in the airframe and it was ferried to Bankstown for inspection. It was deemed uneconomical to repair and remained parked in the open at Bankstown. In 1987 -DHN it was dismantled for useable spares but the airframe lived on, passing from small museum to small museum. It was last reported with the Dove Preservation Group.
