Fuji FA200-160 Aero
Of the 274 Aero Subarus built
between 1967 and 1986 by Fuji Heavy Industries in Japan, some
20 or so were
imported into Australia. The prototype (JA3241)
first flew on 21 August 1965.
VH-FGI was registered in January
of 1970. It is seen above when brand new at Jandakot on
the Royal Aero Club of WA flight line. It was privately
owned, but leased to the club. The shot
below, showing it virtually
unchanged some four years later (February 1974) was taken on Rottnest
Island. It is still current, and still living in
WA. Both photos from the Geoff Goodall collection.
