Photo Comment

The only Winjeel to be painted in the "Fanta Can" colour scheme used by the RAAF's Macchi MB-326s. It was named for its similarity to the colours of popular soft drink. A85-443 was later camouflaged for use as a forward air control role. It was sold in the civilian market as VH-XRA, then later VH-CZE. As -CZE flew once again in the Fanta can colours but more recently has been painted in the standard Winjeel dayglow and silver and marked as "A85-404".
