VH-RQB (1)   Piper PA-22-150 Tri-Pacer                          (c/n  22-5519)


                                      This shot, reproduced from a deteriorating slide, was sent by David Henderson, and depicts
                                       the first -RQB in company with J/2 Arrow VH-ACD and Ansett Metropolitan VH-BZM at
                                      Archerfield, probably in the late 1950s.  First registered in December 1957, it was ostensibly
                                      re-registered VH-ROB in February 1960.  When this sale of the aircraft fell through it reverted
                                      to -RQB again in April 1960, still with the RQAC.   It was not until January 1962 that it then
                                      again became VH-ROB with C.J. May of Grafton, NSW.   Recently, in the new millennium,
                                      it was restored as VH-SWC.
