180 (c/n 30566)
Another hard working Cessna. This
topdresser looks a bit austere without its spinner.
Note hopper behind pilot. It was operated by Northern Air
Services Ltd of Te Kutiti
as their "No. 3". On 2 Mar 1958
the aircraft took off overloaded. The load jettison
mechanism failed and the aircraft hit a knoll
sustaining damage severe enough to declare it
a write off. It was cancelled from the
register in 1960.
