VH-AED (2) Cessna 172
Here's an early Cessna 172 at
Cootamundra, NSW in March 1962. Photo by Bob Dougherty
(via John Hopton). Built as N6132E it
was imported in 1959 by Rex Aviation as VH-RET.
immdediately when sold in January 1959 to VH-AER
it was re-registered
again in June 1960 to VH-AED
(presumably so that the more glamorous Cessna 182B could
assume its old identity).
Finally in March 1966 it became VH-AIM, an identity under which it is
still flying today, based at
Jandakot, Perth, WA.
