VH-DEI   Piper PA-24-250 Comanche                     (c/n  24-1353)


                                  First registered in December 1959 as VH-DJA, this Comanche was re-registered VH-DEI
                                  in June 1963.  Geoff Goodall's shot (above) was taken at Parafield in September 1966, when
                                  the aircraft was owned by Central Western Aviation Service of Nyngan, NSW.  -DEI crashed
                                  near Mackay, Qld in 1975 and was rebuilt in 1979.  The photo below by Danny Tanner was
                                  also at Parafield some seven years after the rebuild (December 1986) showing the aircraft in
                                  pristine condition albeit with a non standard (for Piper, anyway) color scheme.    Still current
                                  (2016) it is today privately owned at Griffith, NSW.
