VH-CYU  Fletcher FU-24-950M                           (c/n  56)

                                         VH-CYU was an early Fletcher, built in 1957 as ZK-BOD and exported to Australia in March
                                         1968 for Air Culture Pty Ltd of Perth.     Roger McDonald's nice color shot above was taken
                                         twenty years on, at Scone, NSW when -CYU was in operation with Pays Air Service.  Perhaps
                                         it had just been overhauled and repainted which may explain the very basic paint job.   Geoff
                                         Goodall's photo (below) was taken at Bunbury, WA in October 1969 whilst the machine was
                                         still with Air Culture.      It is still current and registered to Universal Tracking Systems Pty Ltd
                                         who now use it for airborne geophysical survey work out of Perth International Airport.
