It has come to my attention that the 14th of June, was the 67th anniversary of the first flight of the Fletcher FU 24 in the US, on 14/6/54. (That would have been the 15th of June in New Zealand). So to mark this momentous event for New Zealand agricultural aviation, I will post the photo below from the Neville Drake Collection:
This photo is also special to me because it shows our old house in Melrose in the background and I have taken the liberty of adding an arrow to show the house. I could have even been at home when the photo was taken!
Thanks to Peter Lewis for supplying the photo.
