Name sequence was BUCKET OF BOLTS, then CHANGE O' LUCK, then WHITE CARGO.
(I have never seen pics of names #1 or #3.)

The aircraft was a rogue used for parts in the early days of the 90th in Australia. When they moved out of Iron Range, BUCKET was made airworthy, renamed CHANGE in the hopes that this would influence its flight characteristics & flown to Port Moresby. It was no better, flew only a minimum of missions and was stripped of armament and paint (thus the WHITE CARGO) for use as a Fat Cat.

For some unexplained reason, this was one of the aircraft selected by the RAAF where it became A72-9.

It was still a rogue & its final use was to carry parts for 24 Squadron B-24s when they moved north from Australia. After this it was returned to Darwin and scrapped.
