VH-DTZ Cessna 310L
This was the aircraft owned by my good friend
Richard J. ("Dick") Maclean. The above shot,
however, was taken by Merv Prime
at Jandakot in March 1968 when it was operating a contract
by Richards-Rent-A-Plane of
Toowoomba, Qld to Oil Drlling Exploration Ltd in the Kimberleys.
Formerly N2287F it had been
delivered across the Pacific to Rex Aviation at Bankstown back in
February 1967. .It was
unused for several years when owned by Maclean who finally sold it to a
bloke who wouldn't pay him and
the aircraft was cancelled from the register in 2007 ('reduced to
produce' but still under Richard's name)
My poor shot below was at Essendon in 1984.
