VH-RLS  (1)  Cessna 180                            (c/n  32236)


                                        Here's a pert-looking little 180 at Moorabbin in early 1958.   The machine was brand new
                                        at the time. VH-RLS was re-registered VH-RGD in 1960 and came to grief in an accident
                                        near Cowra, NSW in 1964 and was written off.  The nice color shot below was taken by
                                        Barrie Colledge at Essendon at about the same time as my B & W above.  Barrie points
                                        out that the -RLS stood for the owner's initials - Robert Law-Smith. The legend under the
                                        cockpit read 'Koolamurt Airlines Pty Ltd'.
