VH-DMV (2)  Cessna 172F Skyhawk                   (c/n  17252593)


                                        Seems like a rather ignoble end for this Skyhawk.  It was caught on this rooftop near Lithgow, NSW
                                        in February 1974 by the indefatigable Greg Banfield.      First registered in May of 1965, it was with-
                                        drawn from active duty in October 1971.   Why such a short life, I wonder?    Possibly pranged early
                                        in its career.  I understand it has now been taken off the roof and is lying by the side of the road.
