VH-DIR  Cessna 172E Skyhawk                           (c/n  17250674)


                                        VH-DIR was virtually brand new when Bob Neate took the above photo at Condobolin in April
                                        1964.  The Skyhawk had been registered to Rex Aviation on 13 December 1963 and sold two
                                        weeks later to a private owner in Sydney, although appears to be displaying the RACNSW badge
                                        in this shot.    It is still current, and still lives in NSW.
