                                       Allocated N2334X in the factory, VH-DOP was dismantled and shipped to Australia in 1965.
                                       It was registered in July and became a demonstrator and company hack for Masling Aircraft
                                       Sales at Cootamundra.     Masling sold it to a farming family from Goodooga, NSW, before
                                       it was bought by the Munros, a farming  family from Merriwa in the upper Hunter Valley.
                                       They were to own –DOP for more than 30 years, during which time David Carter photo-
                                       graphed it when it landed at Griffith for fuel in 1977.     The treasured Skylane was flipped
                                       on its back when a storm swept through Scone on February 7, 2007.     While not badly
                                       damaged, –DOP  was assessed as an insurance write-off and parted out.
