VH-IDV  DHC-2 Beaver                                    (c/n 1563)


                                      First registered in December 1964 to de Havilland Australia Pty Ltd and sold to Aerial Agriculture
                                      in whose titling it is seen here in this rather blurry image by D.J. Connell taken at Bankstown in Feb
                                      1965 (via the Eric Wagner collection).  I tried printing this neg several times but always came up
                                      with the same result.   Anyway, in 1967 -IDV was sold to Benders Spreading Services Pty Ltd
                                      of Moonah, Tasmania and re-registered VH-BSY.   It was subsequently written off in a crash at
                                      at Hamilton, Victoria in April 1972.
