VH-WGD Cessna 180C
This 180 had been imported from the US (ex N9239T) in May
1960 as VH-GKD for Territory
of Goroka, New Guinea. It was up for sale when Greg Banfield took
the above shot at
Bankstown on 9
July 1963, the 'Territory Airlines' titling still appearing on the
door. It was finished
in a white and light
blue trim. .In September of that year it was acquired by Hazelton Air
and is seen in the image
below by Bob Neate just after it had been equipped with spray bars.
Hazelton flew many of
usually sans spinners. In the mid 1970s-WGD flew for
Aviation out of Albury,
NSW. It is now part of the Historical Aircraft Restoration
fleet at Wollongong
masquerades in 'warbird' livery (naturally) as the Army O-1G A98-043.
It is seen as such in the
nice aerial shot by Glenn Alderton at the foot of the page taken at
(The real A98-043 was
lost in Viet Nam in 1968).
