Cessna 172F Skyhawk
only images I have of a particular machine are those of the
remains. Such is the
case with -DFZ, seen here at its
crash site near Truro, SA. It was owned by the
Flying Group out of Parafield at the time and
was on a solo navex flight on 28 May 1966 when
the pilot became unwell and attempted a
forced landing near Stonefield, but struck power lines.
pilot escaped with minor injuries, although the Cessna was a complete
write off. It had
first been registered as a new
production aircraft on 29 January of that year to Rex Aviation
and sold to Adelaide Flying Group
several weeks later.
