Narrative:
Registered in Pakistan as AP-ACI for Karachi Aero Club. Registration AP-ACI removed from Pakistan Aircraft Register of Civil Aircraft. Aircraft re-registered as AP-AJU apparently due to in aircraft's registration AP-ACI, letter/alphabet 'I' = 'India' in international Radio Telephony (RT) communication. Because of poor diplomatic relations between Pakistan and India at that time. Pakistani aircraft registrations containing letter/alphabet 'I' were re-registered and new registration issued to these aircraft did not include letter/alphabet 'I'.

AP-AJU crashed in Karachi on February 26, 1959 and damaged beyond repair. Registration AP-AJU removed from Pakistan Aircraft Register on May 17, 1960.
