Taken at the Museum of Transport and Technology, 1991. This aircraft in the image is a composite, consisting of the fuselage of NZ3009 and the wings from NZ3201. NZ3009 was built as 41-25158/ET482 and was one of the first batch supplied to the RNZAF in April 1942. The aircraft served with No4 OTU as FE-F.
I understand from a media report that this aircraft is no longer at MOTAT, (having been exchanged for a more complete static example), and is being restored to flying status.
