VH-BVJ (2)  Cessna 185C Skywagon                        (c/n  185-0667)


                                VH-BVJ was another of Missionary Aviation Fellowships'  vast fleet of Cessnas.    This one was
                                registered new in February 1964 and based at Wewak, where this shot by Alan Bovelt was taken
                                in 1966.   Like several others of its breed, it was modified to A185E standard and later sold to a
                                series of owners in Queensland where it was destroyed in a take off crash at Brookstead, near
                                Pittsworth on 25 April 1978.   It apparently struck a vehicle and a building, crashed and burned,
                                killing both pilot and passenger.
