VH-DBM  Cessna 180 Skywagon                                     (c/n  32594)

                                        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 in
                                        December 1968 as VH-CSS.
