                                      This 402 was registered to Murchison Air Services when Geoff Goodall took the above shot at
                                      Perth Airport in October 1969.  The paint scheme featured a red tail with the stars of the Southern
                                      Cross.  An early production machine, it was previously N3289Q before being registered VH-CJA
                                      on 8 November 1967 to WA Cessna dealers Simpson Aviation at Jandakot.  Murchison acquired
                                      it in April of the following year.    By 1973 it had been repainted in Trans West Air Charter titling,
