VH-PIH  Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee B                                 (c/n  28-843)


                                 VH-PIH, a 1962 model, was one of the first Cherokees to be imported into Australia through the
                                 then current dealership Commerce International.  It is seen here in a shot by Bob Neate (via Geoff
                                 Goodall) while brand new at an air show at Canberra in March 1963.  (It was not actually officially
                                 registered until the following month) . Tony Arbon saw it later (below) at Bankstown in July 1983.  
                                 This -PIH was actually the second, the first being a Piper PA-22 Colt which was re-registered
                                 VH-FFS.   VH-PIH was DBR 75 miles SSW of Quilpie, Qld in 1985.
