VH-TOM (2)  Cessna  210B                               (c/n  57944)


                                              This 210 was the second of its type to be registered VH-TOM to Tom Barrett of Orange, NSW.
                                              (The first was an early 210 he acquired in September 1960).  The above machine was sold to his
                                              mate Max Hazelton of Hazelton Air Services based at nearby Cudal, NSW in December 1963.                  
                                              Bob Neate photographed it at Narromine, NSW in 1963.    In May 1964 it was re-registered to
                                              Max's preferred registration of VH-CMH  but, oddly, the ownership reverted back to that of
                                              Tom Barrett.at that time.  It had a series of accidents at Cudal indicating that Max was probably
                                              actually operating it and it then had a series of owners before being withdsrawn from service and
                                              struck off the register in August 1983 whilst with a Darwin owner.
