This 180 came in from Indonesia in
October 1968. It had a rather interesting history inasmuch
it was first
regsietered in September 1961 to Miluva (Missieluchtvaart/Mission
Flight Service) in
Irian as JZ-PTI. The aircraft was a donation from Pope John
XXIII, which he granted after
seeing pictures from the
crashed JZ-PTH. When Indosenia took over West Irian the Cessna
re-registered PK-RKI. In Oz, it appeared to have participated in
several rallies from time to time.
Danny Tanner';s shot above was taken at Broken Hill, NSW in November
1978 when it was spon-
sored by radio station 4GR Toowoomba, Qld in a rally.
Withdrawn from use in 1984, it languished
restored in 2009 when it went to New Zealand as ZK-BZP.
