One to send modern occupation health and safety officers into a spin. VH-RPN hooked to the hangar while its engine is being run. No ear protection for the engineer, who is just centimetres from the spinning prop, or anyone else as the noise reverberated though the building. VH-RPN is still around after a couple of changes of identity (now VH-MBT) and conversion into a taildragger.
VH-PMC landed heavily at Bankstown on June 7, 1970, tearing off the nose wheel. It was rebuilt with a 130hp engine as an Airtourer T3. It crashed on September 7, 1976, 40 miles from Perth, Western Australia.
