                                     time it was re-registered VH-SBK and converted to mixed passenger/freight configuration.                     
                                     It was the aircraft used for 'JATO' rocket assisted take-off experiments (conducted at
                                     Essendon).   It ceased Sunbird operations in October 1967 and was sold to Australian

                                     became PK-RDC in July 1968.   Its appears to have been withdrawn from use in 1981.
