VH-PLA Cessna 182H
reads the inscription on the nose of VH-PLA although Cessna never, in
marque numbers on this
model. In fact, the only models thus endowed were, in my
later-to-appear twin engine Conquest, the Caravan and the
Citation. Greg Banfield's shot above
was taken at Bankstown in January
1979. In John Wheatley's photo below, taken some
years earlier, it was still clad in its then standard Cessna finish.
The aircraft had been brought in
through Camden Aviation Sales & Service, ex
N8441S. Today it is owned by Run Run Boogies
of Pottsville, NSW, just south of the Gold Coast.
