VH-PEP (2)  Piper PA-22-108 Colt                     (c/n  22-9493)


                                     This 1963 Colt, first registered on 29 May 1964 to the North Queensland Aero Club as
                                     VH-PEK.     It was, in fact, one of the last of its breed to be manufactured.  It was cancelled
                                     in January 1975 with a private owner in outback Queensland.  It would appear that, when
                                     restored in 1998, VH-PEK was no longer available, so it became VH-PEP.   Tony Arbon's
                                     shot above shows it just after its restoration from -PEK, whilst Ian McDonnell's photo below
                                     is much more contemporary and shows the Colt at Caboolture in November 2013.  It is still
                                     current and registered to a private owner at Emu Park, Queensland.
