These Rural Aviation machines had the rego painted in a
non contrasting color on the fin
and even with a nice clear shot such as Jim Dyson's above, (via David
just not discernable. Note open hopper. This aircraft
was sold to the Hawkes Bay and
East Coast Aero Club in 1957 (and named "City of
Hastings"). After several owners it
registered to Mount Butt Aviation Ltd of Ashburton in 1973.
Exact fate, anyone?
