VH-RIB  Cessna 172C Skyhawk                  (c/n  49271)


                                      Another of those 1960 era aircraft where I feel obliged to enlarge the rego so that you can see
                                      that it really is, in fact, VH-RIB (below).      This photo was taken by Bob Neate at Mildura in
                                      September 1962, when the aircraft was privately owned out of Portarlington, Victoria.  Not a
                                      particularly photogenic Skyhawk, color didn't really enhance it, as can be seen in John Wheatley's
                                      shot following the rego enlargement.   VH-RIB was formerly N1571Y.
