                                         This 1967 Aztec C was first registered in September of that year to a private owner in NSW.
                                         The two shots of it here, both from the Geoff Goodall collection, show it (below) as N6373Y
                                         at Orange, NSW in July 1967 just after its delivery from the US, and (above) much later in
                                         May 1978 at Mackay, Qld when it was operated by Lindeman Aerial Services Pty Ltd.  It
                                         was one of many Pipers imported by Jim Hazelton's Hazair Sales & Service of Orange in the
                                         mid 1960s and was officially registered VH-ABX on 11 September 1967.   The  'C' Model
                                         had more streamlined engine nacelles.     In August 1997, while privately owned, the aircraft
                                         crashed just after take-off from Borah, NSW on a flight to Bourke.  The single occupant/pilot
                                         was killed.
