SAAM to acquire Aero 145 VH-WWC/CZL!

SAAM is about to acquire Aero 145 VH-CZL, donated by John and Marj Ellis and the ‘Charlie Zululima Trust’ that had dismantled it for restoration. SAAM will undertake the restoration and display the aircraft in due course.
It has huge South Australian historical importance – purchased originally by John Doudy, who established Commodore Aviation, and registered as VH-WWC in October 1962 then used for tuna spotting and lighthouse supply out of Port Lincoln until around 1979. John’s son, Chris Doudy, wrote a history of it in our last newsletter www.saam.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PM-Jun18.pdf.
