Serial: B-61 (ex B-60, ex VQ-PAV) Unit: 101 tajeset, IDF/AF This aircraft was donated to Sherut Avir by a local lawyer in 1947. At first numbered B-60, but after some damage repaired and renumbered B-61. As B-61 served in 101 sqn, for liaison/utility transport, no more amphibious landings preformed. Destroyed on the ground on 15 May 1948. No Hebrew name given. Like all other IDF/AF aircraft of the period it was camouflaged in Green and Brown, but photographs show the green was only applied ti its rear fuselage for a while. Note: the Blue and White identification markings on the rear fuselage.
