VH-SNY Cessna 175 Skylark
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
October 1961 when Bushies put it up for sale.. When Dave Thollar took
the above photo in
it bore the titling 'D.H. Jennings Pastoral Co - Mt. Surprise Station".
retained the sharp looking
Cessna art deco paint scheme. -SNY had many
owners after that
with periods of being off the
register. John Wheatley's shot belowwas at Alice
1971. The fifty-plus-year-old machine is still current and today
owned in Tam-
NSW. I bnelieve it has been converted to a tail dragger.
