VH-RLT  (2)   Cessna 172H Skyhawk                                   (c/n  17255439)


                                        As the Mobil fuel tank suggests, this shot, by Phil Vabre, was taken at Tocumwal, NSW.  First
                                        first registered on 10 January 1967, the above photograph, taken in September 2009 shows the
                                        aircraft more than forty years on. .   John Wheatley's shot below, on the other hand, shows it when
                                        virtually brand new in the late 1960s.    Odd that the starboard main wheel is sans spat.  I wonder
                                        how that affected its stability?
