VH-CCR Grumman G -164
Whereas Roger McDonald's photo of -CCO
shows a really beat up AgCat, so this one of Roger's
illustrates a similar machine but in absolutely immaculate condition.
This shot was taken at Archer-
field in June 1970. It was registered to Cropcair Aviation in
February 1967, although even then
not a brand new aircraft, having originally been the demonstrator which
went to New Zealand
in 1965 as
ZK-CLQ. It did not (at the time) attract much interest in
that country and hence was
Australia at the beginning of 1967. It remained with Cropcair 30
December 1972 when it
damaged in a crash at Moura, Queensland. It appears never to
have been rebuilt.
