VH-DFS  Cessna 170A                              (c/n  20256)


                                       This early 170 came in from South Africa in 1957 where it had been ZS-DFS.  It was imported
                                       by Barrier Air Taxis out of Broken Hill, NSW.   The Aussie registration resulting from the subs-
                                       titution of VH- for ZS- allowed the registration to be somewhat out of sequence for that time. (It
                                       would be almost seven years before the VH-D series was issued).    The images of the aircraft
                                       portrayed here are by Geoff Goodall and were taken at a country fly-in at Yelbeni WA in Nov
                                      1971.  The delightful air-to-air shot below was taken from a Cessna 210.  VH-DFS was being
                                       flown by owner Allan Mather of  Kellerberrin WA.   It was written off in 1972 in a crash near
                                       Baandee, WA.
