VH-DBM Cessna 180 Skywagon
This early 180 was registered to
Hazelton Air Services of Cudal, NSW in December 1959 and
remained part of their fleet of ag aircraft until November 1966, when
an accident saw it written off.
Mike Coker's shot above was taken at Orange, NSW in
October 1965. The air show in which it
was to have participated was
washed out by rain. However, a highlight was
the noisy arrival of
nine Hazelton Cessna 180
crop dusters in formation! VH-DBM was later rebuilt and emerged
December 1968 as VH-CSS.
