VH-BNS  (2)  Cessna 172C Skyhawk                                 (c/n  49180)


                             Like so many other former Royal Newcastle Aero Club, VH-BNS was a minimum change re-
                             registration to allow the club to retain the VH-RN* block for its own use.   -RNS became -BNS
                             in June 1966.     However, its old registration would languish unused until 1978 when it was applied
                             to a Rockwell Commander 114 based far from Newcastle at Coldstream, near Melbourne.  When
                             David Carter photographed –BNS at Mascot  on October 24, 1970, it was operated by Lease
                             and Industrial Finance.    In June 2016 it was still current to an owner at Quirindi, NSW.
