VH-APC   CAC CA6 Wackett Trainer    (c/n  408)


                               Here's one of the Tasmanian Aero Club's Wacketts at Launceston Airport (Western Junction).
                               Tasmania in 1952.  I have flown this aircraft several times, although it wasn't nearly as good as
                               its stable-mate, VH-BLV, which had a cruising speed of at least 10 knots higher.  Strange, that
                               two seemingly indentical aircraft can exhibit such different flying characteristics. VH-APC came
                               on to the civil register in May of 1946 (ex A3-174)  It was withdrawn from use in 1954 when the
                               Austers arrived.
