VH-AVT  (2)   Piper PA-23 Aztec 250          (c/n  27-405)


                                     More than 80 Aztecs have been registered in Australia and New Zealand over the years.
                                     This was one of the fleet originally purchased by the Avis-Rent-A-Plane Division of the Avis
                                     Rent-A-Car Co.  This photograph was taken by Richard Maclean in 1963 just after the aircraft
                                     came onto the Australian register. However, Avis did not keep this particular aircraft for more
                                     than 20 odd days, as they sold it off to Trans Australia Airlines Queensland Division whence it
                                     became VH-TGB, then VH-TGO and finally VH-TGQ. .   Photos of it as -AVT are rare.
                                     It was subsequently used on  TAA's 'Sunbird'; services in northern Queensland and New Guinea.
                                     VH-AVT was formerly registered N4836P.
