She is a P166C model with the five seat rear cabin, complete with the low set picture window. The demonstrator aeroplane for Forrester Stephen, who were the agent for Piaggio in Australia. Note the L188 behind (complete with the forward airstair). If my seniority number in Ansett had been a little bit higher, I might have jagged a copilot seat on her flightdeck. By then, the Electras had been converted to cargo and they flew with AN into the mid 1980's.
