Taken either at Dargarville or Te Kuiti, North Island. Apologies for quality. A converted Harvard (which donated the engine and forward fuselage), this aircraft was the forerunner of the Transavia PL-12 Airtruk, and was the second PL-11 built. Owned by Rural A/S, seen while leased to Barr Bros., whose FU-24 ZK-BHK can be seen in the background. Barr Bros. were about to order the Australian-built PL-12 Airtruk. This aircraft crashed March 1, 1967 while topdressing, killing pilot Dick Tatham.
