VH-DWB Cessna 180H Skywagon
Originally registered to the Catholic
Mission in New Guinea, this Cessna was carrying Divine Word
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
onto the PNG register in June 1974 as
P2-DWB following the independence of PNG as a separate
Like most ex-VH machines it was then later re-registered in
PNG becoming P2-ROG.
