VH-PKP  Piper PA-22-108 Colt                                   (c/n  22-9534)


                                         VH-PKP started life in Australia as VH-PKB, which it wore from April 1963 to February, 1964
                                       . –PKB was taken up a PA28-180 Cherokee soon after the registration was vacated.   It is known
                                        that –PKP was based in Queensland in the 1960s and by the mid 1970s was being operated from
                                        Moorabbin.    Like many PA22s, it was converted to a taildragger and it was in this configuration
                                        that David Carter photographed it at Mangalore in April 1984.  Mike Madden's shot below shows
                                        it at Moorabbin in the manner in which it was first registered.    This aircraft was current in Dec
                                        2016 and with a pilot from Murrumbateman, NSW, who had owned it since 2012.
