VH-ABL (2)      Rearwin 8135 Cloudster                               (c/n  820)

                                      The second VH-ABL was just as obtuse (exotic?) a type as the first.  This Rearwin was imported
                                      in 1940 and is seen above in what may have been a CofA official photo from the Civil Aviation
                                      Historical Society archives.  The photo below is from the Geoff Goodall collection.   This aircraft
                                      was (unfortunately) damaged beyond retrieval in a fire at Wave Hill in the Northern Territory
                                      in 1958.
