                                   During the boom days of the mid to late 1960s Cessna dealers Rex Aviation leased a second hangar
                                   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.
