Registered VH-RYO from February 1963
to March 1964 before becoming VH-RIF
. David Carter’s picture from December 1969 shows it at Bankstown where
it had received
maintenance. In the mid 1970s the Skyhawk was based at
Archerfield. It was damaged
in August 1980 and spent the next six years off the register.
In July 2006 its registration
was revoked and quickly reallocated to another aircraft, suggesting
authorities knew it was
likely never to fly again.
