It is a Transavia PL12 Skytruk used for aerial topdressing. Designed by Luigi Pellarini who also designed the earlier Bennett PL11 Skytruck.

You might recall seeing one of these in "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome".

It is also known by the name "Airtruk", "Airtruck" and "Skyfarmer".
The nose of this aircraft looks strange. However, the original PL11 used parts from the North American T6 (Harvard), including the radial engine, so it looks like the PL12 was a rather crude way of adapting the airframe to use the much smaller Continental engine.
This sucker is uglier than spit!

It is designed as a crop duster. The saying goes "if the pesticide doesn't get them, the bugs will die laughing".

It doesn't fly, the earth repels it!

Transavia PL12 Airtruk. Brings back some memories. This aircraft was, for quite a few years, a common sight in the Waikato/King Country areas Nth Island New Zealand and was the successor to the Bennet Pl1 designed in New Zealand for aerial topdressing Team usually consisted of 1 aircraft and 1 loader truck with truck crew often being flown to and from base in the aircraft hopper Many thanks for the picture, I assume it was taken at MOTAT Auckland. You may care to check out Airtruk aircraft on Wikipedia and Motat museum siite
