Formerly the Civil Flying School's VH-CFC
reregistered -MEJ in April 1963
to Millard O’Sullivan Aviation of Perth . It was
damaged at Ballarat on October 8, 1972
and was off the register until June
1975. Some sources say it was rebuilt as
Carter’s picture taken at Coldstream, Victorian, in November 1978 shows
in its original
configuration . Converting PA-22s to taildraggers was all
the rage in Australia
in the 1980s and –MEJ was eventually one of them.
In April 1995, the Colt was sold in
New Zealand as ZK-MEJ. Despite suffering an accident
at Manawatu on August 1, 2015,
it remained current to a Palmerston North owner in October 2016.
