VH-AVF (2) Piper PA-23-250
VH-AVF was a 'previously used' machine having been flying in the US as
N4616P for several
years before it
became part of Avis Rent-a-plane’s fleet of Aztecs in January 1966.
Carter's nice photo above was taken at Bankstown in December 1970
after the Aztec had been
overhauled by Hawker de Havillands. VH-AVF was cancelled from the
register in April
withdrawn from service before being restored in August 1975 to new
owners. In July
1985 it was sold
in Fiji as DQ-FEB where it remained until it crashed off Malolo Lailai
July 8, 1987.
