VH- SEO Piper PA-25-235
David Carter’s photo of
VH-SEO shows it in 1970 at Bankstown where it was about to be
dismantled and shipped to Malaysia where it became 9M-APO.
The aircraft was first regis-
tered in Australia as VH-SFO
in January 1964, probably with Skyfarmers, of Leongatha, Vic.
reregistered –SEO in February 1966. Arthur Hayes and
Barry Fredrickson operated
several Pawnees out of Mackay in the VH-SE* block but it also might
have been a minimum
reregistration to free up –SFO, although it was 13 years before that
rego was used again
then not by Skyfarmers). 9M-APO was
not current in 2016 and its fate is unknown.
