VH-RHC  Cessna 182D Skylane                           (c/n  53056)

                                         Greg Banfield took the above shot at Bankstown in April 1965.  Odd, that at that time, the rego
                                         was painted on the fuselage and not as tiny squashed script on the fin.   This Cessna, ex N9956T,
                                         was first registered as a new machine to Schutt Aircraft Pty Ltd at Moorabbin in February 1961.
                                         It was later to go to owners in WA.  In fact, whilst with DJ Air Charter of Bunbury, it was photo-
                                         graphed by Geoff Goodall (below) at that locale in April 1969.       Geoff reports that it had just
                                         landed after doing some local photographic work in the area.   Hence lack of starboard door! 
                                         Geoff's second shot, at the foot of this entry, shows the same machine at Kalgoorlie in August
                                         1972, this time with  Hicks Air Charter (of Perth) titling.     It had several more owners in WA
                                         before being written off in an accident at Mount Magnet, WA on 15 June 1981. .
