VH-FPB  (2) Grumman AG-164 Agcat                  (c/n  263)


                                VH-FPB was imported some two years before sister craft VH-FPA, being registered first on
                                9 June 1964.  Like the latter machine it, too, was based in Wagga, NSW where this color slide,
                                by Bob Neate, was taken. in 1965.  It is still currently registered at Wagga and has been owned
                                by Fred Burke since 1993.   Fred advises me that -FPB flew her last ag job two years ago. She
                                is, however,  kept airworthy and Fred indicates that he is the process of designing a jump seat to
                                slip into the hopper but without losing the ability to carry liquid ( just in case ).   It still flies on the
                                original grade A cotton with factory paint job.  Phil Vabre saw it at Wagga in July 2010 (below). .
