This was the
former TAA's Royal Flying Doctor Service's VH-DRE
'Eric Donaldson' which was
in January 1963 into the RFDS series as VH-FDT. Greg Banfield's
photo above was
taken at Bankstown oin 24
Oddly, when the Drover c/n 5014 was exported to
the U.K. as G-APXX
it wound up (derelict now) in the Lashamn SWAAPS Air Museum painted
VH-FDT. Since this latter machine never actually flew with the
Flying Doctors I guess they
represent it as one that had. Anyway, the true VH-FDT went to
Air Melanesie in the

Returning to Australia a
it became VH-EOO.
