VH-EOF Fletcher FU-24
As its c/n suggests, this was the second
production FU-24. It was first registered in New Zealand
November 1954 as ZK-BHA.
Roger McDonald's nice color shot above was taken at Jandakot
1979 while the aircraft was with Air Culture, to whom it had first been
registered on 9 July
Geoff Goodall's photo below was also at Jandakot albeit a decade
earlier in August of
just after the aircraft had been imported, whilst at the foot of the
page is another of Roger's
time at Ararat, Victoria in November 1977 when -EOF was being operated
nearby Stawell. The fact
that it had round cabin windows indicates
that it may have
for other than agricultural use whilst it was still in New
Zealand. By 1979 it seems
had them metalled over as seen in Roger's photo above.
accident at St. Arnud, Vic 0n 25 February 1985.
