Cessna 210K Centurion
The 210K had several enhanced features over previous model
Centurions. The undercarriage legs
were changed from spring steel to tube with bulged main gear
doors. Also, the rear cabin now had
large, instead of two smaller, windows.
The four shots on this page are all from the Geoff
Goodall collection and show -RTH
(above) at Dampier, WA in full Murchison Air Services livery
all red tail and Southern Cross stars. Murchison was its
first owner and the 210K was
delivered in January 1970. (The Fokker F-28 in the
background is VH-FKA). By October of
1971 Murchison was in the process of being taken over by Trans West Air
Charter and in the shot
immediately below repainting had commenced.
Photo No 3 shows it again at Dampier now with
the then Trans West
markings. Finally at the foot of the page it is
seen in a new TWAC livery at
Hedland in October 1975. -RTH had several other
operators over the years before being
written off in a crash at Killiecrankie, Tasmania on 17 December 2002. .
