VH-KWB Cessna 172H Skyhawk
Here's a brand new 172 just out of its crate at
Bankstown in late 1966. Photo by Kevin Murphy.
During the boom days
of the mid to late 1960s Cessna dealers Rex Aviation leased a second
and used a vacant lot nearby to store their crated new single-engined
Cessna imports. As can be .
seen, these were painted up with their Australian registrations at the
factory in Wichita (even though
they may have been
assigned an N number) . VH-KWB was first registered
in November 1966
and is still current,
today being privately owned in Victoria.
