Title:  Commonwealth CA28 Ceres

The Commonwealth Ceres was a purpose built agricultural aircraft which first flew in 1958 and used substantial components from the earlier Wirraway WW2 trainer. The manufacturer purchased a large number of surplus Wirraway aircraft from the Australian government in the hopes of a long production run of the Ceres. In the end only 21 examples were built, as the market became dominated by more modern and economical aircraft such as the Piper Pawnee and Fletcher FU24.
