Owned by Glenn Atkinson. Glenn was a pilot with Flightways Air Services at the time - they flew Cessna 441s, and Citation IIs. A few months after this photo, Glenn was doing aerobatics off Rottnest Island (off coast near Perth), had engine failure & had to ditch in sea, close to shore. The CJ-1 flipped onto its back, & Glenn waited a few minutes for cockpit to fill with water before opening canopy & swimming to surface. Aircraft had minor damage, but returned to flying condition & still regd in 2007.
