VH-WKB  Cessna 172H Skyhawk                       (c/n  56002)


                                         Up from Victoria and visiting Caboolture, Qld on 8 January 2012 was this 1967 model Skyhawk,
                                         seen in this shot by Ian McDonell.  John Whestley's shot below was taken forty years earlier, pres-
                                         umably at Bankstown whien the aircraft was operated by Nepean Flying School.   -WKB was the
                                         former VH-DPU, and N2802L when imported.   It was later one of a number of similar aircraft
                                         operated by the Rockhampton Aero Club.  When new, 172Hs were equipped with spats which
                                         can be discerned in the deep shadow of John's image below.  .  Somewhere along the line, these
                                         were ditched on -WKB.
