VH-FWB  Piel CP-304 Emeraude 85            (c/n  339)


                                     The 1964 R.M. Ansett Air Race from Brisbane to Adelaide was populated with a variety of
                                     aircraft.  This petite Emeraude was one entry.  Normally home-built, this Emeraude had been
                                     assembled by Martins Industries in Camden, NSW.   In 1968 it was converted to a CP-320
                                     with a 100 hp Continental engine and given a new c/n of N5.  It was written off in a crash at
                                     Gunnedah, NSW on 18 September 1983.   Geoff Goodall's shot of it (below) was taken at
                                     Adeliade Airport in April 1962.
