Notes:

Rare view of new Orlican Meta Sokol L-40 VH-DUX at an Air Pageant at Tooradin Airfield YTDN on 05May1974. The aircraft, owned by a Toorak resident, was granted an Airworthiness certificate on 12Feb1971. Unfortunately, the aircraft crashed after take-off from this Air Pageant at Tooradin Airfield on 05May1974 (while heading for Moorooduc). The pilot and two passengers had minor injuries, but the aircraft was written off. (Note unusual ‘reverse tricycle’ landing gear.) Thanks to Andy Marshall for advising that this photo was taken in 1974, not 1971.
