The history VH-RSV is a confusion of dates. It was re-registered from VH-CBM in 1957 but then re-registered VH-WAU in 1954. Clearly an error. The livery in the photo is as worn by club Chipmunks in the early 1960s and there are photos of it from 1960 in the club's earlier livery without tail stripes. While the photographer's name is no longer known, at the time the photo was received "early 60s" was the time scale given for it.

Designed by Luigi Pellarini, the Tanker was a predecessor of the Transavia Airtruk. The Tanker used an Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah engine and first flew in 1956 from Bankstown. It failed to win interest from cropdusting firms and the project was stopped. The PL7 was never certified or registered. It was damaged in a hangar fire and scrapped in 1962. Pellarini moved to New Zealand where he developed the Bennett Airtruck using T-6 parts before returning to Australia to design the Transavia Airtruk. Photo by Col Peck.
