Fresh of a major rebuild is this Beech C17B Staggerwing VH-UXP (c/n 108). Registered in Australia as far back as 2-02-1937, kit served with the RAAF during WW11 as A-39-3 before returning to civilian life. It is listed to Cameron Hawley and has spent some time at Mandeville under rebuild with finishing being carried out at Wanaka (as seen below at Wanaka on 18-02-2013).
