VH-EIW  Cessna 172K Skyhawk                             (c/n  17258489)


                                       David Carter photographed the then brand new VH-EIW at Bankstown in 1970. It had been
                                       registered to Rex Aviation in February that year.   The 1976 register showed it based at Stan-
                                       thorpe, on Queensland’s Darling Downs and it was at nearby Cottonvale that it was damaged
                                       during a storm on December 11, 1984      . It took almost two years to rebuild and it returned
                                       to the register in October 1986    . The October 2016 register showed it was still in the Darling
                                       Downs, owned by Margaret Scells, of Toobeah, who also owns a Cessna 337 and a Bell 47G.
