VH-WIT  Cessna 180B Skywagon                                (c/n  50635)


                                     Now here's a rarity....and a nice one at that.  A Cessna 180 registered in Australia in 1960
                                     which wasn't an agricultural aircraft.  This one was privately owned when Geoff Goodall took
                                     the above shot at Narrabri, NSW in September 1968.  It was a 1959 model, assigned the
                                     US registration N9135T (although may have been exported directly from Wichita).   It would
                                     appear that it was converted to a top-dresser, however, as seen in the photo immediately below
                                     (from the CAHS collection) where it is carrying a hopper and has Airland titling.  This 180 is
                                     still current and registered to an owner in Queensland.    Phil Vabre took a nice contemporary
                                     shot of it (below) at an Fly-In at Echuca, Victoria in April 2009.
