VH-DWB  Cessna 180H Skywagon                            (c/n  18051889)


                                         Originally registered to the Catholic Mission in New Guinea, this Cessna was carrying Divine Word
                                         Airways titling when this shot, by Ben Dannecker was taken in the Territory (as it was then) in 1970.
                                         I am presuming that Divine Word Airways was the aviation arm of what is now the Catholic Church's
                                         Divine Word University.  The 180H was first registered in February of 1968.     It was re-registered
                                         onto the PNG register in June 1974 as P2-DWB following the independence of  PNG as a separate
                                         nation.     Like most ex-VH machines it was then later re-registered in PNG becoming P2-ROG.
