New aircraft, same rego & colour scheme! This VH-FDB (the 4th) replaced an earlier King Air 200C. It was allocated the US rego N7317A(2) but probably never wore it, unless for flight testing, as it was registered new to the RFDS in 'their' VH-FD_ (Flying Doctor) block on 24 April 2007. It's seen here departing Runway 14.
