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
Carter photographed it at Mangalore in April 1984. Mike Madden's
