Some four Beech Musketeers were
entered into the 1964 Ansett Air race. No. 76, entered by
K.C. Blair did not finish.
Greg Banfield took the above shot of it in fading light at
29 March 1964 at the end of
the first day of the race. Geoff Goodall's photograph (below) was
taken at Moorabbin shortly afterward (May of 1964) in the lee of that
beautiful stand of fir trees
which stood on the eastern perimeter of the airfield (long since
chopped down, of course). New
May 1963, this Musketeer
was re-registered VH-CVB in 1967, and was damaged beyond
repair at Penshurst, Victoria a year later.
