VH-FJM Fuji FA200-180 Aero Subaru
Japanese aircraft to be registered in Australia, the Aero Subaru sold
in small numbers
from 1968 to 1971. They have proved durable, with about three
quarters the original 19 air-
craft surviving more than 45 years. VH-FJM is one of the
survivors. It was registered in
1970 and still registered in September 2016 to an aircraft engineer at
St George, Qld.
David Carter’s photo above shows it at Moorabbin in November 1980 when
it was owned
the Moorabbin Flying Group.. Possibly the gaudiest Fuji I have
ever set eyes on.
