VH-MEQ  Piper PA-25 Pawnee 150                  (c/n   25-342)


                                     This early production Pawnee was carrying a non standard Piper livery when Geoff Goodall
                                     took the above shot at Muckinbudin, West Australia in February 1975.  This suggests it had
                                     pranged once or twice and been repainted in a custom scheme.  This PA-25 was first registered
                                     at the end of 1960 as VH-DAK, assuming the identity VH-MEQ in 1965 when it was acquired
                                     by Millard O'Sullivan Aviation.  It spent a brief period with Civil Flying Services (WA) Pty. Ltd.
                                     in 1965 before being acquired by Bob Couper Pty Ltd in 1966.   It was sold off some time in
                                     the 1970s and was written off in a crash at Beacon, near Welbungin, WA in August 1980, killing
                                     the pilot.
