VH-DAM Victa Airtourer 115
VH-DAM was registered in September 1966
after previously having been VH-MUS and VH-RQQ.
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
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.
