205 VH-KMF at Essendon on 26th December 1974. Although officially
a Cessna 210-5A, the aircraft was in reality a Cessna 205.
The 210-5 was a development of the 210C but had a fixed
tri-cycle undercarriage, a 3300lbs TOGW, a stretched fuselage
incorporating an extra port side door, two main doors and
six seats. It was powered by a 260hp Continental and it,
in turn, was developed into the Cessna 206 whilst the 210
line continued on to the 210D etc.
