To that end, good luck to you Mr Billings.

However I do question the tag/ dataplate.

Hanging by lockwire on a component in service?

That would be odd.
Clearly Currawong, like Sunfish, you haven't read the website either :-)

I read it perhaps 2-3 years ago on David's website and without referring back to it now, I believe that the plate was a service tag which is presumed to have been attached when the aircraft had an engine o/h / removal after the Hawaii groundloop... testing my memory now and I'm sure David will chime in if I'm horribly wrong :-)
