VH-BVQ  (2) Cessna 180 Skywagon                               (c/n  31342)


                                This 1955 model Skywagon came in from New Zealand in September 1964.  It was ex ZK-BVQ.
                                Since the the former bearer of this last three  (a Chipmunk, q.v.) had been reregistered in 1961 it
                                was deemed prudent to merely change the NZ country code to that of Oz.   The above photo was
                                taken by Dave Thollar at Archerfield in July 1967.  Incredibly, (after all, it is sixty years old) this air-
                                craft is still on the current register and appears to be based at Albury, NSW.    It's probably worth
                                a fair bit as a 'classic" right now.
