VH-RFG  Cessna 182B Skylane                                  (c/n 52058)


                                        VH-RFG was registered as a new aircraft on 10 July 1959 to Robbys Aircraft Co at Parafield
                                        before being sold to a Sydney owner in October 1960.   It was advertised for sale in June 1962
                                        by deHaviiland Aircraft at Bankstown having only had 456 hours TT by then  .   It was painted
                                        white with a two tone green.   It then had three consecutive Melbourne owners before moving
                                        over to WA on sale to Ted McGuire of Wittenoom in the northern Pilbara district, who traded
                                        as Wittenoom Tourist Centre.    In addition  to providing charter flights to the ore mining towns
                                        McGuire also offered scenic flights over Wittenoom Gorge.  In June 1974 -RFG was traded in
                                        at Schutt Aircraft at Moorabbin and quickly sold on to Turramberry Estate near Echuca.  It is
                                        currently back in the Northern Territory, flying for Bunda Livestock Pty Ltd of Katherine.
                                        Sounds like this busy Cessna has really earned its keep.
