VH-DCN  Cessna 172C Skyhawk                        (c/n  17249015)


                                      After being very briefly registered to Cessna agent Rex as VH-RDZ, this Cessna adopted the
                                      registration VH-DCN in March 1962.    When David Carter photographed it at Griffith in 1978,
                                      it was still wearing its stylish red and cream factory finish.       In 2006 CASA revoked its regis-
                                      tration, along with many others, over a lack of up-to-date paperwork .     Most returned to the
                                      register quickly but not VH-DCN.       Its registration was reallocated to a Robinson helicopter
                                      in 2008     But that was not end of the Cessna’s story, for in November 2014 it reappeared on
                                      the register as VH-SBU to an owner at Narrabri.
