Photo Comment

This old C172 has been re-painted, still in its original Cessna factory colour scheme. And boy it looks good too! It was originally N5827R, but this was probably just a "trade-plate" as it was registered new in Australia on 17 December 1965, operated by the Ballarat Aero Club. Currently based at Tyabb, it's seen here at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Auster Rally.
