At a guess, is it Phillip Island and a Nanchang and Yak52?

Yes, Cerberus R332 - we did a 2-ship formation display for the RAN for the Open Day at the base.

Thumbs up FDK

Isn't it an RFDS PC12 now?

There there Doc, try not to be too upset, at least it was lucky enough, in its obviously all too short life, not be afflicted in the tail region - and its gone on to higher things now.... It had a good life down here and lets hope its end was not too painful. (Just shows though, damn things not worth fixing/maintaining eh?)

Chuck,
You are of course correct but I thought it was close enough - given the rego, which was the real 'interest' in the post!
I took the photo at Tyabb on the w/e - it (the shell) has been in an old hangar for ages and has just been moved out.
No idea to whom it belongs but I suspect salvaged by The Aviation Centre for parts many moons ago. I'll check if you are interested....

CAPT Fathom,

Good guess but no prize for second location. Actually it was Bamyan - a beautiful place in a very troubled country.
Ghazni? Is that the strip that had the military base plonked right on the extended centreline? I remember doing the initial inspection after that was built, clearly not by people with aerodrome experience, thinking to myself "this place is going to last about 30 seconds into the first decent rainfall.

Is that the same BSH that I took down the West Coast on June 5, 6. 7th June1960??? It was a PA22 piper tripacer, painted red
Geezaz mate the Westies would have only just started walking on their hind legs and stopped eating their young in them days

Did not the Ykat0 club have a red Piechaser?

Tinpis,
It is possible,I remember BSH, got a suprise to see it in its new configuration still providing stirling service, it was 1960 when I flew it last, it was newish but not new then.

Checking the logbook there is a PA22 BLC Mar 61, could that be the Waikato machine??? Also just after that had a check circuit in PA22(108) piper Colt, 2 seater version of Tripacer, did that check with Ken Windsor, did you ever run into him??.

The Piper Colt PA22/108 you mention was probably ZK-BSL which I think was the first of its type in NZ and was owned from new by the Auckland Aero Club from about 1961. Ken Windsor was an "A Cat" instructor at the AAC about 1961-64 and a real gentleman. Did some of my commercial training with him. I think he then went to Fiji either flying with the local airline or operating a trading schooner but later came back to Auckland to retire, and I believe he died some years ago.
I made extensive use of the Colt while building up hours for the CPL as it was usualy avbl at short notice and at a favourable rate for someone on apprentice wages. My last knowledge of the Colt was that it was owned in Geelong (Grovedale) about 3 years ago.

blackburn,
Yes, that is correct, found the right log book, it was indeed BSL. Have to agree with your findings of Ken, a real gentleman. Those PA22's were really built to last!!

Last time I heard of Ken, heard through the grapevine many years ago, he was P1 on a Air Pacific BAC1-11 that had an explosive decompression between Nandi and Auckland. Cant remember the details, maybe some one in the forum can recall.
