VH-SNY  Cessna 175 Skylark                                              (c/n  55712)

                                     This 1959 model 175 was formerly Bush Pilots Airways VH-BPH (having been imported ex
                                     N7712M). . It was re-registered into the (then) DCA Queensland block of regos as VH-SNY
                                     in October 1961 when Bushies put it up for sale.. When Dave Thollar took the above photo in
                                     October 1967 it bore the titling 'D.H. Jennings Pastoral Co - Mt. Surprise Station". and still
                                     retained the sharp looking Cessna art deco paint scheme.  -SNY had many owners after that
                                     along with periods of being off the register.    John Wheatley's shot belowwas at Alice Springs
                                     in 1971.  The fifty-plus-year-old machine is still current and today is privately owned in Tam-
                                     worth, NSW.   I bnelieve it has been converted to a tail dragger.
