This was the former VH-ANM, sent to
the Ansett New Zealand subsidiary in October of 1961.
It is seen above at Essendon just before leaving
Australia in this shot by Alan Fraser (via the Bob
collection). It was leased to Fiji Airways in 1966 as VQ-FAI for three years
ing to New Zealand
in 1969 and reverting to ZK-CAW. It was then leased to Mt.Cook
in Christchurch and
later sold to charter company South Seas Airways in 1971. When their
to obtain an
operating license fell through it went to Fieldair who converted it to
a crop sprayer.
ZK-CAW was finally
withdrawn from service in 1984 and wound up as an annexe to a
Taupo. For a photo and details of it as
such, go to:
