Remarks: This is actually the second Harvard to carry the reg VH-ZRO. Built by Canadian Car and Foundry for the RCAF as 20362 and taken on charge as late as 19 August 1952. Sold March 1968 and converted to a replica 'Zero' for the film Tora! Tora! Tora!, registered N15798. Sold after the film in 1971 and flew in the USA and UK until 1998. Exported to New Zealand as ZK-ZRO until exported again to Australia in October 2000. Registered VH-ZRO on 17 August 2001 and currently based in Brisbane. It really looks the part!
Remarks: Catching the setting sun after a hard day's flying at the Wide Bay International Airshow. This aircraft was built for the RNZAF as NZ6370 and made its first flight in the UK on 17 Oct 1972. It was shipped to NZ and reassembled at Ohakea, making its first flight there in Jan 1973. In June 1993 it was sold in Australia and shipped to Bankstown. It was stored for some years before being restored, and currently operates on warbird adventure flights out of Port Macquarie.
