                                     This Missionary Aviation Fellowship Skywagon is carrying the organization's titling (many of them
                                     did not) when this shot, by Alan Bovelt was taken at Wewak's smaller strip at Wirwa in 1967.
                                     -MFG was the former VH-BVM first registered in February 1963, and was originally transferred
                                     to the USA division of Mafair based across the border in Indonesia as PK-MPG.  In January 1966
                                     it was ferried down to Mafair's maintenance base at Ballarat, Victoria and then remained parked in
                                     the hangar there all year before re-emerging as VH-MFG in March 1967.    Three months later it
                                     went missing on a short flight from Telefomin to Olsobip, and its wreck age has never been found.
