(1) Cessna 182A Skylane
This 182A was
finished in a yellow, white and metallic paint job when seen at
Adelaide Airport in
(above) by Geoff Goodall. It was a regular visitor to Adelaide
and back in those those
parked in the TAA hangar, tucked in with the Viscounts overnight.
It was first registered on 12 August 1958 to a Mr. C.A.
McFarlane of Penola, SA and remained
with him until sold in February
1966 when he replaced it with the next entry in this series, the
Comanche 400. The deal
was handled by Pipeair of Moorabbin who arranged for a registration
shuffle, the 182A becoming VH-RFO
and the Comanche, which was previously VH-PYI assuming
the -REQ identity (only in
Australia..........). Anyway, as -RFO this 182A is still
and is owned by Hunt Aerospace of darwin.
