VH-WAM  Cessna 182A Skylane                             (c/n  34734)


                                     This 1957 model straight tail 182 (ex N4034D) was flown in the Ansett Air Race by Dr. Dorothy
                                     Herbert of Charleville, Qld.     I assume that Avis Rent-a-Car/Rent-a-Plane were her sponsor.
                                     The plastic appliqués appear to be tearing off.    Greg Banfield's shot (above) was taken during the
                                     overnight stop at Bankstown on 29 March 1964.     In the mid 1970s this Skylane was operated
                                     by Davey Air Services (Qld) (Pty) Ltd of Goondiwindi.  It is no longer current.
