The tanker is Rural's if that helps....
Yep. And it looks like a Rural Aviation logo on the door of the red white and blue speciman.Surely there would not have been many 180's with dayglo tails !
The lower picture is the wrong way round. The background 180 is XXX-XX.The 1957 schemed 180's should show the rego under the wing and the wing mirror is on the wrong side.
Good spotting Anonymous.I have turned it around for you.Thanks.
The lower photo, I suspect, was taken after mid 1964. The car number plate looks to be of the early permanent style issued at that time. It doesn't look like a yellow and black one in use between 1961 and 1964. What year and model is the car.
The car is a 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air 4 Door Sedan. I think the white aircraft is ZK-BVD, though it might be ZK-BUG.
Dayglo Cessna is most likely ZK-BUY,the white one ZK-BUG and the silver/blue one is ZK-BUJ.
Excellent.So this will date the daglo C180 photo as pre mid December of 1961.
