(2) Cessna 172E Skyhawk
The second -BDE was first registered in
December 1964, and was one of many 172s imported at
by Rex Aviation of Bankstown. It is
seen above in this image from the Geoff Goodall
collection at its home base of Wongan Hills, NSW in November 1975.
It was still owned by the
owners, A.J. & B.P. Ellis when this shot was taken. My
register notes indicate that it was
to become VH-DIQ but no doubt re-allocated at the request of the
owners. It later went to
Station , inland from Carnarvon, WA . It was cancelled from the
register in March 1978
following some sort of accident.
