VH-PLS   Cessna 172G Skyhawk                          (c/n  17253499)


                                     Ex N5830R, VH-PLS was straight from the factory when it was registered in February 1966.
                                    Around the time David Carter saw it at Griffith in 1978 it was owned by a private pilot from
                                    the NSW alpine town of Khancoban.   The October 2016 register showed the then owner as
                                    a pilot from Port Lincoln,  SA, who acquired it in 2013.
