VH-AFD  CAC CA6 Wackett Trainer  (c/n  379)


                         Another forlorn looking Wackett, also sans cowling (a la VH-AFC previously).  Did they fly
                         them this way?  Surely not.   Anyway, this one displays the fin colors of the Royal Vic.   VH-AFD
                         was previously A3-145 and was destroyed in a crash near Lockhart, NSW in December of 1948.
                         Is that a hand lawn mower under the nose?  The mowing of Moorabbin field using such a machine
                         must have been quite a formidable task!
