VH-EMR  Cessna 182                                    (c/n  33623)


                                         This 182 overturned during a forced landing a few miles north of Perth, at Brinsmead, WA on
                                         16 October 1959, the result of which is seen in the image above from the Geoff Goodall collect-
                                          ion.   Originally VH-REH when imported it became VH-EMF(2) when sold by Rex Aviation to
                                          E.M. Fitzgerald in March 1959.  When acquired shortly afterward in June of that year by Aerial
                                          Missions of Albany, WA  it was reregistered -EMR.  Unfortunately the damage sustained in this
                                          accident was worse that it looks and the aircraft was written off.       The wrecked airframe was
                                          acquired by the Royal Flying Doctor Service to be used as parts and  the remains were still to be
                                          seen some four years later in a hangar at Perth Airport
