VH-REI (2)  Cessna 180F                           (c/n  51185)


                                     This shot of -REI was taken at Benjaberring, WA in April 1972 when the aircraft was bringing bidders
                                     to a farm closing down auction, which included an airworthy Tiger Moth in the barn..   Geoff Goodall
                                     recorded the event in this photo.          The 180 was previously the Missionary Aviation Fellowship’s
                                     JZ-PTL in Dutch New Guinea and later PK-MPF in Indonesia.     It was traded in in Australia on a
                                     new Cessna 185, and  registered  VH-REI in November 1967 to Bob Couper Co at Cunderdin WA. 
                                     Still current, it was looking pristine when photographed by Ian McDonell (below) as Redcliffe, Qld in
                                     September 2009.
