VH-CMN  Cessna 182F Skylane                        (c/n   18254752)


                                          VH-CMN, seen here at Jandakot in October 1971 by Geoff Goodall, was owned at the time by
                                          the charter company Esair Pty Ltd of Esperance WA.   Alistair Coutts' shot, below, was taken at
                                          the same venue five years earlier in June 1966.      VH-CMN was another Hazelton second-hand
                                          import ex N3352U, registered on 12 November 1965 to Hazelton Air Services of Cudal NSW.
                                          The following year it west to WA when sold to Air Culture Pty Ltd who fitted spraybars for agri-
                                          cultural spraying, clearly visible in Alistair's photo.        In fact, trigear Cessnas were rarely used for
                                          crop spraying in Australia but nevertheless Air Culture had this one plus -DBX also acquired from
                                          Hazeltons which they used for the 1966 ag season.    Both were soon sold off and -CMN was
                                          acquired by in June 1968 by Trans West Air Charter of Perth and returned to standard four seater
                                          configuration.  It is still currently registered.
