VH-INF SOCATA MS893E Rallye 180GT Gaillard (MSN 12649) owned by Martin Ford at Serpentine Airfield - Sun 27 October 2013.
VH-INF SOCATA MS893E Rallye 180GT Gaillard (MSN 12649) owned by Martin Ford at Serpentine Airfield – Sun 27 October 2013.
Built in 1975. Ex F-ODCB, ZS-JSI, V5-JSF, ZS-JSI.
The Rallye aircraft was designed and built in France. The original aircraft was designed by Morane-Saulnier as the MS.880 Rallye Club in response to a French government competition, making its first flight in 1959. It entered production from 1961. In 1965, Morane-Saulnier became part of Sud Aviation in 1965, and was renamed Socata in 1966. The Rallye was quite a popular aircraft in Europe, and over 3,300 were built by the time French production ended in 1984, with the Rallye being replaced in production by SOCATA’s TB aircraft (TB9, TB10, TB20). The Rallye was then produced in Poland as the PZL Koliber.
This is the only Rallye in Australia.
The wing differs to most light aircraft in having full-span automatic leading-edge slats, wide-chord slotted ailerons, and wide-span Fowler-type trailing-edge flaps, giving it good STOL capability.

"VH-REM" Mooney M.20H (cn 1) "Sugar Bird Lady" Robin Miller memorial, owned by Royal Flying Doctor Service, at Jandakot Airport - Sun 27 October 2013.
“VH-REM” Mooney M.20H (cn 1) “Sugar Bird Lady” Robin Miller memorial, owned by Royal Flying Doctor Service, at Jandakot Airport – Sun 27 October 2013.
This aircraft is a well-known landmark at Jandakot, normally mounted on a concrete pylon at Jandakot Airport, opposite the Royal Flying Doctor Service facilities – a photo of the aircraft on its pylon is in our October 2012 photos, taken exactly one year earlier on 27 Oct 2012.
It is now resting on its belly airside, on the grass near runway 24R, and it’s tail appears to be damaged.
Jandakot Airport Holdings advised that 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 asked to store it airside until they make a decision as to what they are going to do with it.
The aircraft is not the real VH-REM (which is still flying), but 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-EPK Bell 412EP (cn 36100) of CHC Helicopters, on lease to the WA Department of Fire and Emergency Services as ‘RAC RESCUE’ at Royal Perth Hospital Helipad (YXRP) – Tue 22 October 2013.
Leased to the WA Department of Fire and Emergency Services whilst the usual yellow-coloured RAC Rescue helicopter, Bell 412EP VH-EWA undergoes a major overhaul.
VH-EPK was built in 1994. Ex C-GFNO, N68654, XC-JCU, N412HH.
The helipad at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) was opened on 27 July 1999. Located on the balcony of Level 5 in the North Block, the helipad is located close to the Intensive Care Unit and Operating Theatres, and is connected by a dedicated transport overpass to the Emergency Department. The helipad is used for helicopters transporting trauma and burns victims with life-threatening injuries from up to 200 kilometres away from Perth, saving critical time.
Statistics show that in serious trauma cases, the time between injury and initial stabilisation (known as the ‘golden hour’) is the single most important factor in patient survival.
In another link to aviation, the funding for the helipad came from the Sir Norman Brearley Trust, set up by the Rotary Club of Perth. Brearley was a famous, pioneering West Australian aviator who established the airline which operated the first scheduled air services in Australia. Brearley was also a charter member of the Perth Rotary Club and established the trust to fund worthwhile community projects.
