5Y-AIV     DHC-2 Beaver 1                                            (c/n  1615)


                                        In 1969 two ex New Zealand Beavers were acquired by the Desert Locust Control
                                        Organization and shipped to Nairobi.   David Carter caught them at Bankstown.  5Y-AIV
                                        was the former ZK-CYD, and was named 'City of Independence'.  I had been shipped
                                        to New Zealand, new, in 1966.   After over two decades in East Africa it was sold in the
                                        US in 1992 becoming N1966B (a 1966 Beaver, no doubt).  Since then it has appeared
                                        in both float and wheel undercarriage, and, as of 2017, was still current.
