Something that would never happen in the 21st century. Two light aircraft flying in formation are joined by an airliner heading the same way. The light aircraft are VH-REL and another 310, VH-REK, the airliner TEAL DC-6 VH-BGA. It is over the Tasman Sea between Auckland and Sydney, the final leg of the Cessnas' delivery flight from the US. The DC-6 is on a regular passenger service. Phil Lightband photo.

VH-RRA was withdrawn from use in 1978 and stripped of useful parts. Despite having relatively few hours, the number of holes drilled in the fuselage and wings for experiments made it unsuitable for commercial use. The hull was used by the Sydney airport fire service until 1988 when it was scrapped completely.

I didn't notice when I took this shot that there was a "name" on the nose. It looks like CYRANO, but I can find no reference from any sources.

A former Department of Civil Aviation aircraft, VH-CAT joined the Australian government scientific research organisation in 1978. It was used for all manner of scientific research and experiments. COSSA was the CSIRO Office of Space Science and Applications. At one stage VH-CAT was named "Cyrano", a reference to a very long nose probe sometimes fitted. The name was dropped by 1987 even though the nose probe continued to be fitted when required.

A former Department of Civil Aviation aircraft, VH-CAT joined the Australian government scientific research organisation in 1978. It was used for all manner of scientific research and experiments. COSSA was the CSIRO Office of Space Science and Applications. At one stage VH-CAT was named "Cyrano", a reference to a very long nose probe sometimes fitted. The name was dropped by 1987 even though the nose probe continued to be fitted when required.

VH-CAT was delivered to the Department of Civil Aviation in 1959 and operated on calibration work until 1978, when it was sold to the CSIRO. Over the next 20 years it was used for scientific research which at times required being fitted with a long nose probe, which earned it the nickname Cyrano, after Cyrano de Bergerac. VH-CAT was withdrawn from use and eventually displayed at the South Australia Aviation Museum.
