CA6 Wackett Trainer
Another Wackett. This one at Moorabbin, circa
1957. This aircraft was ex-RAAF A3-172.
Barrie Colledge has
provided the nice color shot of it below taken at around the same time,
advises that it ended its days at
Bankstown after proposed conversion to a YA-1 Cropmaster.
This plan was evidentally
abandoned around 1964 since Barrie states that at his last sighting of
it was still a conventional CA-6.
As a follow-up to that, Geoff Goodall has kindly
with a shot of it (bottom of
page) taken at Bankstown in January of 1964 with the Cropmaster
cockpit mockup. It
never flew as such and was ignomiously dumped in the long grass
some of Sid Marshall's Ansons.
