VH-GWM  Piper PA-108 Colt                     (c/n  22-9338)


                                         VH-GWM had just been imported as a new aircraft the previous month for M. Manuel of Boort,
                                         Victoria when this shot (via The Collection p5555-0458) was taken at Bendigo in October 1962.
                                         It remained with the original owner for at least two decades, but has subsequently had several other
                                         owners and is still currently (2011) registered at Caboolture, Queensland.   Ian McDonell saw it at
                                         at that venue on 8 December 2012, (below) looking absolutely pristine and still, incredibly, wearing
                                         its original paint scheme.
