VH-RKX  Cessna 172D Skyhawk                     (c/n  17249688)


                                         Taken forty years ago (in February 1973) by Geoff Goodall at Perth Airport in the days when one
                                         could saunter nonchalantly across any tarmac in Australia unchallenged.     As they say "Don't try
                                         this at home" today.    VH-RKX was registered on 12 December 1962 to a pastoralist at Nungarin,
                                         WA.      It went on the many owners and was eventually wrecked in a crash at Borroloola, NT on
                                         30 November 1987.  The Connie in the background of this shot, incidentally, was N7777G, carrying
                                         speakers and support gear for a Rolling Stones tour of Australia.
