VH-EON  Piper PA-22-108 Colt                    (c/n  22-9835)


                                  This late model Colt came in from Malaysia in September 1968 where it had been 9M-ANQ.
                                  It looked really sharp with spats.   -EON was withdrawn from service in 1980 and then rebuilt
                                  in 1986.  Greg Banfield photographed it at Luskintyre, NSW (above) on 17 May 1986.   The
                                  color shot immediately below, by John Wheatley in the early 1970s,  probably displays it in its
                                  original livery. Like many Colts and Tri-Pacers in Australia in was subsequently converted into
                                  taildragger status as seen in the shot at the foot of the page, by Phil Vabre, taken at the AAAA
                                  Fly-In at Swan Hill, Victoria in 2005.
