VH-ACY (1)   Aeronca 65C Chief                     (c/n  C4919)


                                      This rare shot is from the Len Dobbins collection and is shown here courtesy of the Civil Aviation
                                      Historical Society collection.  It depicts the only (so far as I can ascertain) Aeronca 65 series ever
                                      to be registered in Australia.    The photo was taken outside Airflite's hangar (the importers) at
                                      Bankstown.  First registered in November 1939 it survived the war (although was not impressed
                                      into service with the RAAF) and was sold in August of 1949 to Sarawak, becoming VR-WAA.
