At that time
it was owned by Keith Dayal Singh

and a variety of other aircraft to get around his building sites in
VH-AJC was retired in December 1961 probably due to deterioration of
its glued joints, a
in 1963, caused DCA to mandate a withdrawal of all such wooden aircraft
(Geminis, Messengers, Mercuries et al).
