'Unionair' reads the
legend in the box under the starboard side door of this
150. VH-GJC was one
of then numerous new Cessna 150Gs that flooded Australia in the mid
1960s. Rex Aviation must
have brought in dozens of them.
-GJC was a very early one, being the 16th Model 'G' built, and was
first registered on 14 September 1966 to
Williams Aviation Co. of Rockhampton, Qld. The 'G' had
a slightly wider cabin and new
instrument panel from its predecessor. . When imported by Rex it
rego VH-RZF, but this was ntu. Williams, incidentally, purchased a new
at the same
time. -GJC was later sold on to other owners
before it crashed and burned on 21 May
while attempting to land on a road at Lake Bancannia, NSW.
