VQ-FAD DHA-3 Drover
In 1964, aircraft of the
British/French Condominium of the New Hebrides were registered in Fiji.
Drover, formerly VH-BMU was
sold to New Hebrides Airways. The
above shot, by Brian
Walker (via Geoff Goodall) was
taken at Port Vila just after the aircraft had arrived. Note dual
British/French flags on the tail. When the New
Hebrides own civil register was formed in 1966
the Drover became VP-PAD. As such it crashed in a
gorge on Tanna Island in October 1966,
killing all 8 occupants aboard.
