Nothing like the photographic quality of Piano Man, but a couple from recent travels.





And a mate from YCAB who has invested heavily in preserving Australian aviation history with the first ever Beech in Oz. If you ever have the privilege to see it it is immaculate.

Spraying Beaver

The Beaver spraying looks like it was east of Balaclava, SA, so perhaps Kenny B, or Bob Beattie.

I don't believe I actually met the pilot for this particular aircraft on this occasion. It was a while back (mid 60's perhaps??) but Ozaggie you are spot on with the location. 'Tis indeed Balaklava to the left of the Beaver. Well done!

The name of Bob Beattie rings a bell - he may well have been on AG work in this area - perhaps I heard his name mentioned by the local contractor who used to arrange for these ops. Unfortunately he is no longer with us so I can't ask him.

I've a few others of Ag operations in this area in that era - I'll look them up and post here when I get a bit of spare time.

THE FIRST Beech in Australia.

You can read more in Classic Fighters( or Classic Wings....I forget the name) or other places on the web.

This is the best restoration I have seen to date. Along with the Stinson Reliant from WA. Both are

Thanks for these pics - it's great to see a DHC2 in something other than AG work.

Sadly I haven't seen or heard one down here in the driest state for many years.

Only ever saw them in daylight ultralights. Didn't know they were lit as well. They make a rather impressive gatepost though, don't they, as well as the other sculptures there.
