Photo Comment

VH-RCW was first registered in December 1960. Looking faded and unused in 1976 and was formally withdrawn from use in 1977. It next had a Cessna 150 blown into it during a cyclone, then was hit by a taxiing Cessna 206. By 1983 -RCW was dismantled and stored in an airport compound. Its fortunes changed in 1985 when it returned to the register. 10 years later and fully restored, it was a regular visitor to air shows and fly-ins.
