B1 had just been assembled at Bankstown when this shot, by Arthur
Perkins was taken
on 16 November 1966.
The B1 was a scaled up version of the A-9A with metal wings and a more
powerful engine. Like its
stablemate VH-BEB, this aircraft did not remain in Australia for long
was repatriated back to the US in
October 1967 as N9488.
