VH-ROC      Piper PA-22-160 Tri-Pacer                                (c/n  22-5757)

                                   This was the former Royal Queensland Aero Club's VH-RQC (registered in February 1959) with
                                   the 'Q' tick eliminated when it was sold off in July 1960.  David Carter photographed it in a hangar
                                   at Camden in early 1970.   Tragically, on August 6 that year, the aircraft crashed into the sea near
                                   Umboi Island, Papua New Guinea.       The only trace found of the aircraft and its two occupants
                                   was the nose wheel.
