                                       Several Australian registered early short nosed Aztecs were converted to Apache B standard locally.
                                       VH-AVE was one, seen in its original form (above) at Essendon in late 1962 in this shot by Barry
                                       Maclean.. The image below, by Bob Neate, at Narromine in October 1963, shows it after it was
                                       modified by owners Avis Rent a Plane of Sydney.   In June 1964 it was sold to TAA for their Sun-
                                       bird services and re-registered VH-TGP.
