At least one hundred Hughes
300 series choppers have been registered in the Australasian
over the years.
They have been used in agricultural roles as well as for
helicopter training. This
one was imported new in November 1969 and then went
to PNG in May of 1974 as P2-EQJ.
Restored to the VH- register in September 1978, it
was written off near Canberra on 23 March
1979.. Photo above by
