Photo Comment

VH-DUB was registered in June 1960 as part of a concerted push to sell Czechoslovak light aircraft in Australia. Over the next 15 years it had many owners, the last of whom took -DUB to Port Vila in what is now Vanuatu when he retired. It suffered a wheels-up landing on March 18, 1975. While the damage was limited, it was deemed beyond economic repair. It had flown a mere 1078 hours.
