VH-DAM  Victa Airtourer 115                                      (c/n  29)


                                   VH-DAM was registered in September 1966 after previously having been VH-MUS and  VH-RQQ.
                                   David Carter’s picture dates from 1970 when it was seen at Bankstown.    For much of its life -DAM
                                   was owned by Elaine Sage, of Nimmitabel, and later Moruya.       She was shown as the owner in the
                                   June 30, 1976 register edition and was still the owner when she crashed it at Bombala on February 23,
                                   2004.   Mrs Sage, a long-time member of the Airtourer Association, was already in her 80s at the time
                                  of the accident and she passed away in 2014.  It is not known if –DAM will be resurrected but its regis-
                                  tration has been reallocated.      It is also not known when the Airtourer received its 150hp engine or if
                                  indeed it did.        A 2001 picture of Mrs Sage with her plane described it as an Airtourer 115 but the
                                  picture did not show its engine.
