VH-BBM  Fletcher FU-24/A4                                  (c/n   136)


                                         Although built in November 1967 as ZK-CVT, this Fletcher was exported almost immediately
                                         to Australia where it became VH-BBM (3) in February 1968.  Greg Banfield's shot above was
                                         taken at Scone, NSW whilst the aircraft was owned by the late Col Pay's Air Service.  Shortly
                                         after this it flew with both Superair and New England Aerial Topdressing out of Armidale, NSW
                                         for many years.  Incredibly (for a duster) it is still (late 2008) operating, and flies for an agricultural
                                         company in Hyden, WA.
