VH-SFN  SIAI-Marchetti SF.260                                (c/n  122)

                                    

                                        Rare shot taken by John Wheatley in the hangar at Bankstown.  This SF.260 was one of only two
                                        such machines registered in Australia.    It was the former G-AXKA and was an entrant in the Dec
                                        1969 London-Sydney Air Race.  Initially registered OO-HEI when new, it only remained in Australia
                                        for just over a year having been registered -SFN in January 1972 and sold overseas (possibly in the
                                        Philippines) in February 1973.  John's shot was badly underexposed and, in lightening it, the dark blue
                                        trim has become almost black.
