                                 My good mate Ian Mcdonell goes around looking for hulks to make my collection of civil Australian
                                 aircraft registered before 31 December 1970 complete.    One such is the remains of this Cherokee,
                                 first registered in October 1967.   It was one of many Cherokees in the VH-PP series.  In the mid
                                 1970s, -PPX was with the Gove Flying Club at remote Nhulunbuy in Northern Territory's bauxite
                                 mining distract.  .  It was withdrawn from service in 2010.  Ian's shot was at Gympie in August 2016.
