                                           photo above was taken at Narromine in September 1963.   Formerly N8582T, it was one of
                                           the many used machines imported around that time (in this case in May of 1962) by Hazeltons.
                                           It was later fitted out as a crop sprayer, one of the few nose-wheel Cessnas so be so modified
                                           in Australia, and sold it in 1966 as an agricultural machine to Air Culture Pty Ltd, Perth.  Alistair
                                           Coutts photographed it (below) whilst it was with that operator at Jandakot in July 1966  It was
                                           later converted back to regular 4-seat configuration and went on to several other owners before
                                           being officially cancelled from the register in June 2006, although it had evidently quit flying some
                                           time before that. .
