I'll miss it too, but not as much as I would miss the Beach 18s that were operated by Flinders Island Airways.
VH-FID was made in 1948 and as far as I know it's still alive and well.
It's impossible not to like an aircraft that was built in 1948, carries Hostesses rather than stewardesses and has a better power to weight ratio than a Chevy Corvette. :-)
