VR-NAK  Bristol 170 Wayfarer                                       (c/n  12736)


                                     I've always thought the Bristol 170 was an odd choice for a bush aircraft for West Africa.  It
                                     never struck me as having particularly good "hot and high" (well "hot") performance character-
                                     istics.  Nevertheless WAAC operated six of them from 1949 until 1955 in both passenger and                               
                                     freight configurations (two were lost in accidents).   VR-NAK was built as G-AHJD, and went
                                     to Nigeria in 1952 .  It was repatriated in 1955 as G-AHJD again and was sold to Eagle Aircraft
