Larry Be­han

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN' IN THE TROPICS WITH ALF WILSON -

VET­ERAN truckie Larry Be­han has an in­ter­est­ing hobby out­side work which is fly­ing ul­tra light planes.

The 62-year-old Larry has a five acre prop­erty at Oak Val­ley near Townsville and drives a Mit­subishi FM14.

“I have a Bob­cat and mainly do work around Townsville but also get to cat­tle prop­er­ties near Ing­ham and Char­ters Tow­ers. The Mit­subishi is a good truck,” he said.

His busi­ness is L&S Be­han and Larry has been a truckie for 37 years. He pre­vi­ously had an old Ford Louisville.

“It is de-reg­is­tered and still on my prop­erty,” he said.

Also there is his trusty ul­tra light plane and a 6m long alu­minium boat pow­ered by a 140hp out­board mo­tor.

“I love go­ing fish­ing out to the reef and the ul­tra light needs a new wing which is the rea­son I haven’t flown it for a while,” he said.

Larry said he hoped to con­tinue driv­ing the Mit­subishi for many more years.
