VH-CKN  (2)  Cessna 402B                                       (c/n  402B-0121)

                                    The registration VH-CKN was originally allocated to one of the four ex-Japan Airlines Beech H18s
                                    (see VH-CKS for the story) to have been acquired by Trans West Air Charter.  When that deal
                                    was thwarted by DCA's reluctance to certify the tri-gear Beeches, Trans-West opted for alternate
                                    equipment.  This 402B was purchased in Malaysia where it had been 9M-ARC (and 9V-BDW in
                                    Singapore before that).  It arrived in Australia on 11 May 1974 having been ferried over by Trans
                                    West's chief pilot Ken Voss.  Geoff Goodall's shot (above) was taken at Jandakot in April 1975.
                                    It was later sold to various owners before being exported to Thailand, initially as HS-MPA, and
                                    then re-registered in April 2006 as HS-SPA.    It is, I believe, still current under that identity.
