VH-MVC Victa Airtourer 100

VH-MVC Victa Airtourer 1962

“VH-MVC was the second production Airtourer and was widely used as a demo aircraft. Note that the rego is displayed across the fin and rudder. Later production craft had it smaller, on the fin only.  Noted Airtourer historian/authority Doug Stott points out that early models had exhaust augmenters fitted as seen in the shot above (rearwards from the firewall), but were gone by the time the second image was taken.  Similarly, the under-fuselage venturi tube had been repositioned. The photos
above and immediately below are by Geoff Goodall.  The top one at Parafield in September of 1962, presumably when the aircraft was on a demo tour, and the lower at Jandakot, WA, six years later, in what would be regarded as a more “standard” Victa livery (below).
