VH-DSA  Cessna 177 Cardinal                                 (c/n  17700460)


                                          I've often noticed that several tricycle gear aircraft seem to have almost tail dragger angles of
                                          attack.   Some Bellanca Vikings, Bonanzas and Ercoupes seemed to suffer from this malady,
                                          as does this Cardinal.  Perhaps it was the angle from which John Wheatley took this shot? 
                                          Anyway, -DSA was one of half a dozen such machines brought onto the VH- register in mid
                                          1969.    It is no longer current, although was registered well into the new millennium.
