VH-ANU Douglas DC-3CG202A
This aircraft spent all its life as a
freighter, (and therefore was never white-topped). It was built
as a C-47A-25-DK with USAAF serial
number 42-93592. It was sold to Pacific Air Transport
in 1944 and purchased by ANA out of Manila, in
1945. However, it was not one of those
aircraft assumed by
that airline took
over ANA, since it had been sold to Mt. Cook
Airlines in 1955 as ZK-BKD.
It spent time
with Fieldair in New Zealand, but I am
not sure if it
was converted to a crop
duster or not (several DC-3s were). It wound up as a decoration
"Smash Palace Wine Bar"
in Gisborne, N.Z.
