VH-DZF  Cessna 177 Cardinal                           (c/n  1770174)


                                  In 1968 a pot load of new Cardinals was imported into Australia, most of them in the VH-DZ
                                  series.  This one, oddly, wasn't  first registered until September 1970  (Was it left in its crate for
                                  a  couple of years?).  Anyway, it was a participant in the Benson & Hedges Australian Air Race
                                  when the above shot, by Danny Tanner, was taken at Parafield in October 1976..   Currently it
                                  is owned by a company in Mareeba, Qld..
