From the Department of fond memories.

Way back, when men were men, I was mucking about on "The Coast" in the late Cessna 172E ZK-CGA, when Cessna 180A ZK-BUQ, still in Southern Scenic marks,  joined us for a couple of minutes at the mouth of the Turnbull River. BUQ is still in fine form but alas CGA crashed in the Ohau Hills in September of 67.
Just an odd pic - for no particular reason - from the fond memories department.


  1. Always love those Cessna 180 and 185 photos!

  2. Great stuff...when was it taken?
    A few guys fron Wgtn Aero Club came down toFox to see me in it around early 1967.

  3. Hi Ian.
    Guess about April of 1966 - I will see if I can lay my hands on logbook #1 - It is hidden up in the library in the ceiling of my humble hacienda.
    There was just the three of us; my mate and his girl friend , plus self.

  4. Ah...from memory it was Ron Price, Harvy [?}plus one other.
