VH-EQM  Piper  PA-30-160  Twin Comanche B                    (c/n  30-1350)


                                         VH-EQM was another of the aircraft flown in the 1969 London-Sydney Air Race.  Like
                                         several others of its ilk, it stayed on and was reregistered in Australia.     David Carter saw
                                         it (below) at Bankstown in January 1970 as N8222Y and carrying the titling of its sponsor,
                                         Central Western Aviation Service of Bourke.  It was actually the Piper dealer's (Ansett
                                         General Aviation) demonstration aircraft.     Roland Zweck saw it (photo above) at Para-
                                         field in September 1971 wearing the Ansett logo.  It was sold to Faetre Pty Ltd in the Sydney
                                         area and was probably based at Bankstown.  It then had several other owners and is today
                                         it is privately owned in Queensland.
