                                VH-BPF was actually Bush Pilots second Cessna and was first registered in April 1958.  It was
                                formerly N4882D.  The photo above (coutesy of the Maurice Austin collection) was taken at
                               Cairns headquaters in 1959.  As can be seen, BPA by that time was an authorized Cessna dealer
                               also.  When sold in 1960, -BPF became VH-SNN.
