VH-SMS (2)  Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee                  (c/n  25-2968)


                                        Quite a number of ex-aggie aircraft (especially Pawnees) were relegated to glider towing when their
                                        crop spraying duties were done.   One such was VH-SMS, seen here in April 1996 at Camden,
                                        NSW by Greg Banfield.     This aircraft was originally destined to become VH-CIP (to replace an
                                        earlier Pawnee 150) but, for some reason, this was not taken up.   VH-SMS is still (2010) operated
                                        by the Southern Cross Gliding Club.
