VH-IHB  Hughes 269A                              (c/n  33-0179)


                                   With the power plant and rotor removed for maintenance, this 'aircraft' looks more like a flying test
                                   bed than anything that any sane person would want to get off the ground in............Having said that,
                                   these diminutive choppers gave good service.          This one was registered new in June of 1963 to
                                   importing agents International Helicopters Pty Ltd, and Peter Limon's shot above was taken at that
                                   venue in December of that year.  VH-IHB had a variety of owners before being wrecked at Macarthur
                                   River Station in the Northern Territory on 17 October 1972.
