VH-EXP  Aero Commander 690FL Grand Commander                      (c/n  1490-94)


                                  This Launceston, Tasmania based Executive Airlines Grand Commandeer was at Flinders Island
                                  Airport in February 1980 when the above shot (a flat-bed scan of a colored negative) by George
                                  Canciani was taken.  It has the typical Aero Commander minuscule rego on the tip of the tail.  (See
                                  enlargement below to prove its ID).  The 680FL model included seating for 11 (including the pilot)
                                  and the four square cabin windows.  This aircraft was withdrawn from use in 2006 and left to languish
                                  at Cambridge Airport, Hobart.  So far as I know, the remains are still there.
