The above shot shows
VH-DIU on the Rex Aviation ramp at Bankstown in September 1965.
It was originally VH-RLV
then VH-KMC with Bankstown flying school
Navair Pty Ltd before
being traded back to Rex
Aviation as VH-DIU in June 1965. It was sold to Mrs
dePierres of Yorkrakine WA
in December 1966, and later went to the Bunbury Aero Club, WA.
It was destroyed on 4 August 1972
in a fatal crash while attempting to cross the Great Dividing
Range mountains north of
Melbourne in low cloud at the notorious Kilmore Gap. The image below
shows it at Bunbury, WA in
April 1970 while with Bunbury Aero Club, still in basically the same
livery.. Both photos
