VH-RHP Cessna 172B Skyhawk
Above is a shot by Bob
Neate of Skyhawk VH-RHP at Parafield in January 1964 whilst the aircraft
was owned by
F.H.Clarke of "Kayrunnera" Station via Broken Hill, NSW. It
was first registered in
March 1961 to Rex Aviation.
It is still current after several other owners and the
below was taken
by Martyn Covey with the red soil of Yarrawonga, Victoria as the
March 2009 Fly-in. This Cessna has had modern STOL
and, for a machine which
will be, in a
couple of years' time, 50 years old, it is looking
extremely well kept. Having said that,
several sister ships
built on the line at Wichita in the same week as c/n
48304 are still flying in in the US.
VH-RHP is currently
based at rural Mansfield, Victoria.
