VH-RLW  Cessna 336 Skymaster                              (c/n  336-0005)

                                     This early 336 was imported in 1963 with its US rego still intact suggesting it was purchased
                                     from a dealership in the US rather than directly from Wichita.    Rex Aviation of Bankstown
                                     were the Cessna dealers of note for Australia in those days and the two shots depicted here
                                     were taken at that venue by Greg  Banfield;  the upper one in June 1964 and the lower just
                                     after it had arrived, exactly a year earlier.   It apparently remained with Rex until June 1965
                                     when it was sold to Ansett-M.A.L. as VH-CMY for their Light Aircraft Division to be based
                                     in the Sepik District of New Guinea.
