                                       VH-PIB was registered in June 1961. Little is known about its history other than when
                                       David Carter photographed it at Griffith in 1979 it had recently had a Melbourne owner
                                       and was based at Essendon.  It looks very odd wearing a nose wheel spat but had them
                                       taken off for the main undercarriage..  In Mike Msadden's.shot.(below) taken earlier at
                                       Maitland in 1972 it has the complete set.      Still current today (2017), this fifty-five year
                                       old classic was based at Swan Hill. .
