VH-WKB Cessna 172H
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
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.
