VH-RET  (2)   Cessna 182D Skylane                  (c/n 53012)


                                     The small titling on the cabin door says "Schutt Aircraft - Cessna Dealer" on this Skylane.  Schutts
                                     rebuilt many new Cessnas at Moorabbin in the 1960s, out of their packing cases.  Bob Neate took
                                     the above shot at Warracknabeal, Victoria in February 1962.    In John Bland's photo (below), at
                                     Moorabbin, the titling had been changed to 'Sunraysia Air Taxis - Mildura'   The first owner?
                                     Anyway, it returned to Moorabbin in the 1970s to a private owner, although today is registered to
                                     an owner in Gunnedah, NSW.  Ian McDonnell took a contemporary shot (Nov 2015) of it at that
                                     locale showing a very nice white and gold livery (foot of the page). .
