VH-PET  Mooney M.20C Mark 21                                     (c/n  2690)


                                    One of the rarely seen and photographed Australian Mooneys, VH-PET has spent much of its
                                    life in the remote western Riverina region of NSW.      Originally N1906Y, it was registered in
                                    Australia in March 1964.     In 1976 it was owned by grazier Archer Smith, who kept it at the
                                    airstrip on Norwood Station, 50 miles north-west of Hay.   David Carter saw it making a visit
                                    to Griffith in 1977.     In October 2016 VH-PET was owned by another grazier from the same
                                    region, Gordon Turner, of Brassbutt Station.
