VH-REX  (1)  Cessna 182                                   (c/n  33197)


                                VH-REX was one of the first 182s imported into Australia.  It is seen above at Bankstown in 1956
                                in this photo by Jim Dyson.     Richard Maclean's shot (below) at Moorabbin in 1958 suffers from
                                contrast problems.  VH-REX was previously on the US register as N6397A.     Shortly after
                                Richard's shot was taken it was re-registered VH-REA, doubtless to leave VH-REX open for
                                a more exotic import.
