(2) Cessna 175
The first VH-BBO was an Anson (ex
W2062) which was sold in Burma in 1947 as XY-ABG.
The chances of my acquiring a photo of
it in any guise are, I suspect, slim to none! The
registered in July 1962 as a second hand import (ex N7222M) to B.B.
Branxton, NSW. Although his initials (VH-BBM) were available for
allocation at the time, for
reason he chose -BBO. Bob Neate's shot above was taken at Orange,
NSW in November
1963. In August 1964 it was sold to Mining Supplies Company
at Kalgoorlie WA, who re-regis-
tered it as VH-MSK in November 1964.
