VH-DSP Cessna U206C Super Skywagon
VH-DSP is still current and is now based
in the Australian Capital Territory. When the above
was taken at Jandakot in March 1971,
however, it was still with its original owners. Aerial Enterprises
of Derby, WA.
John Wheatley saw it at Alice Springs (immediately below) also
in 1971, under
threatening skies. New two years
previously, it had been imported by WA Cessna dealers Simpson
Aviation, and left Wichita a N3981G.
It was later sold in Queensland and the shot below at the
of the page was at Rockhampton in May 1973 when it was owned by a real
estate auctioneer. The
belly cargo pack was an optional extra available with the U206A model
on. Above and lower images
