Built in 2013. The Department of Parks and Wildlife uses a fleet of American Champion 8GCBC Scout aircraft as fire spotter aircraft for forest patrols in the south-west of WA. They are based at Jandakot, Bunbury, Dwellingup and Manjimup, and fly across areas set each day according to the forecast fire weather conditions. The aircraft fly more hours during the hotter months (around 3,500 hours) due to the increased fire risk. They also supervise waterbombing operations in the south-west, relaying information to fire controllers regarding the fire’s behaviour to assist in firefighting and ensuring the safety of fire crews.

VH-SGT Beech 200 Super King Air (MSN BB-73) owned by Formula Aircraft Pty Ltd and “VH-REM” Mooney M.20H (cn 1) “Sugar Bird Lady” Robin Miller memorial, owned by Royal Flying Doctor Service, at Jandakot Airport – Fri 30 May 2014.
VH-SGT: Built in 1975, ex N9729S. First registered in Australia 8.7.1975, this aircraft first flew for the Queensland Government, initially with their Premier’s Department, and later with the Queensland Police. It was delivered to Network Aviation in February 2003. It suffered a main undercarriage collapse on two occasions whilst landing at Perth Airport, following which it was withdrawn from use at Perth Airport. Cancelled from the register on 19.1.2009, it was stripped of spares and trucked to Jandakot. On 14.7.2009 it was registered to Formula Aircraft Pty Ltd at Jandakot, and sat in the corner of the Formula Aviation hangar until Feb 2014. It was moved outside the hangar and then to the aircraft ‘boneyard’ area at Jandakot.
“VH-REM”: This aircraft is normally mounted on a concrete pylon at Jandakot Airport, opposite the Royal Flying Doctor Service facilities. During September 2013, there was a storm which snapped the mounting and the Mooney was blown off its concrete pylon. The aircraft belongs to the RFDS and they are storing it here until they make a decision on what to do. The aircraft is an engineering experimental prototype Mooney M20H (c/n 1) airframe that had been used for load structural testing at the Mooney factory in Kerrville, Texas. It was donated by Mooney Aircraft to serve as a memorial to Robin Miller, and was transported to Australia aboard a USAF C-141 Starlifter transport aircraft. The memorial was unveiled on 20 May 1978. It was refurbished in January 1999. It is is painted to represent the real VH-REM Mooney M.20E Super 21 (c/n 424), which is still registered, that was formerly used by Robin E. Miller (hence the registration REM). Travelling to remote aboriginal communities, Robin Miller (daughter of the Australian aviation pioneer Horrie Miller) would treat children with Polio vaccine in sugar lumps and became known as “The Sugar Bird Lady”. She flew the real VH-REM around WA from September 1968-July 1972. Robin later joined the RFDS at Jandakot, and delivered several aircraft from USA to Australia. Robin Miller-Dicks died of cancer on 7 December 1975, at the age of 35.

VH-BVG Cessna 210N Centurion II (MSN 21064019) owned by Handel Aviation, Gymea, NSW, operated for Nearmap Pty Ltd, at Jandakot Airport – Mon 17 March 2014.
Built 1980, ex N4845Y, N80FM. This aircraft has been modified with a special photographic survey pod called a ‘Hyperpod’ for Nearmap Pty Ltd. It replaces their previous Cessna 210s, VH-TKQ and VH-ZIO.
Nearmap’s Wikipedia page states: “Traditionally, high resolution aerial imagery has to be captured by a low altitude flying aircraft, then the data is manually processed and stitched together digitally to create a PhotoMap, a slow process which can take months to complete. NearMap speeds up this process by using their own engineered camera capture equipment, named a ‘HyperPod’, which is attached to Cessna 210 light aircraft, which fly at a high altitude, enabling entire cities to be captured in a day or two. Once the imagery is captured, it is processed through super computers which run software known as ‘HyperVision’ which automatically processes and stitches together the many individual photographs captured into one virtually seamless PhotoMap. Along with traditional top-down photography, the HyperPod is also able to capture oblique aerial photographs from 4 different angles and digital elevation model data at the same time.”

This aircraft arrived at Perth from Dubai World Central as TTF9034 at 12:51am to collect some mining equipment, and departed as TTF9035 at 8:38am to Mauritius and reportedly continued on to Ghana. Built as an An-124 on 30 November 1987 as CCCP-82014 in full Soviet Air Force livery, and was operated by 566 VTAP at Seshcha. Reregistered RA-82014 by 1997, in Russian Air Force livery, operated by 224 LO by June 1995. Was noted at Ulyanovsk-Vostochny in June 2002, stripped of paint – it was intended that the aircraft be converted to An-124VS space-rocket launch aircraft but this never proceeded. The aircraft was cancelled from the Russian register for a time, but was readded to the register on 5 December 2002 by Polet as an An-124-100. Stored at Seshcha from around 2009. Returned to Russian Air Force 224 LO fleet in April 2010. By 25 August 2011, it was operated by 6957 AB at Seshcha, with ‘224 LO’ badge on fin. It then had a ’40th anniversary 1971-2011′ badge added near the cockpit.

Now painted with CGG logos – previously with Fugro. This aircraft was previously extensively modified for geophysical survey work, and it had an electromagnetic loop, nose and tail booms, tail magnetometer, and towed receiver – see photos taken on 15 September 2012 by Keith Anderson. All of this equipment has now been removed. This aircraft was built in 1978 and test flown as UK Class B registration G-14-128. It was then registered to Short Brothers Ltd as G-BFUJ, and appeared at the 1978 Farnborough Air Show. It was delivered to the Lesotho Police in January 1979 and registered 7P-AAC, but was reregistered a few days later as PMU-2 and delivered to the Lesotho Police Mobile Unit (hence the serial PMU-2) on 7 February 1979. Ten years later on 7 February 1989, it was sold to GAS General Aviation Services as N982GA, based in South Africa. In October 1989, it was registered ZS-MJS to Skyvan Services and operated by Executive Aerospace Ltd in South Africa. It was delivered to Perth Airport as ZS-MJS in 1996, and soon flown to Jandakot for extensive modifications to survey configuration. It was registered on 12 December 1996 as VH-WGT to World Geoscience Corporation Ltd, which was taken over by Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty Ltd in 2000.

      No further history details available after that – perhaps check with a Canadian aircraft spotters group to see if they can assist you.

      The aircraft you refer to was VH-HHQ Luscombe 8E Silvaire (MSN 4365), ex VR-HHQ, PI-C135, N1638K. Registered 8 May 1985 to Arthur Rooney. Sold in 1995 to Michael Lawton.
      It was substantially damaged on 25 August 1995 94km east of Jandakot. The aircraft was cruising at 2,500ft and 80kt when the engine lost power. The pilot completed a forced landing into a farm paddock. On touchdown the aircraft collided with some sheep causing the pilot to lose directional control. The aircraft ground-looped and the landing gear collapsed. Preliminary information indicates that all fuel in the tank selected at the time of the occurrence was exhausted.
      Aircraft was deregistered by CASA in 2006, so it may have been written-off.
