VH-SAK Beech N35
had been imported through de Havilland's distributorship in October
1961 as VH-DHB.
It was sold to Somerset Airways of Longreach,
Queensland the following month and became VH-SAK.
28 March 1963 Somerset sold it to M.N. Calvert of Nerrin Nerrin,
Victoria and it was officially re-
registered as VH-MNC. However, when Dick
Hourigan took the above shot at Essendon on 1 April
1963, the painter had not gotten around to repainting it (photo via the
Geoff Goodall collection).
