VH-PCJ (2) Piper PA-18 150 Super
Whilst Cessna and Beech models were imported into
Australia in the 1960s, 70s and 80s in droves,
a relatively small number of rag and tube Pipers seemed to
make in onto the VH- register. One
exception was this Super
Cub, seen here attending a Retailers' Rally at Archerfield, in
by John Wheatley.
First registered in May 1968, it was owned at the time by
the then Premier of
Bjelke-Petersen. It is still active and today is registered in
Victoria to a private owner.
