Aircraft imported from New Zealand by builder Alfred Henry Marlow, for travel to jobs around the Fiji Islands.

It was badly damaged during a tropical cyclone which lashed Fiji between 26 February and 3 March 1931. The aircraft was withdrawn from service and later displayed at a local technical college (along with other aircraft). Some time after 1972 the aircraft was returned to Germany, restored, and is now on display as VQ-FAB at the Deutsches Museum, Munich.
