VH-BXJ Cessna 185A Skywagon
model 195 was based on the 180, but was structurally redesigned to
carry greater payloads
at higher speeds. VH-BXJ, a
1961 model, (ex N4054Y) was first registered in Australia in 1964.
Geoff Goodall's photo above was taken at Moorabbin
in February 1965 whilst the machine was
working for Aerial Agriculture Pty Ltd.
It was re-registered VH-AGE in April 1967 and was
written off in a crash at
Charleville Qld in 1978.
