                                         As indicated in other narratives in this gallery of pictures, Piper Cubs were not common in
                                         Australia.  In fact, this one returned to the US later in its career.   Registered in December
                                         1968, VH-PXX was Ansett General Aviation’s Super Cub demonstrator when David
                                         Carter photographed it at an air show at Hoxton Park, Sydney, in 1969.   By 1976 it was
                                         owned by a farmer at Einasleigh in North Queensland.     As stated above, in November
                                         2002 –PXX was cancelled from the Australian register as sold in the US.    At the time it
                                         was owned by Fire Rite Industries of Riddells Creek, Victoria.        The aircraft became
                                         N92RR and was reregistered N184WL in 2011    It was seen at Oshkosh in 2012 with
                                         huge balloon tires and some strange looking pannier container under the fuselage. It is still
                                         current (January 2017), based in Colorado Springs.
