VH-IAV  Piper PA-28-140 Cherokee                   (c/n  28-21157)


                                  What happened to the rear fuselage?   Greg Banfield, who took the shot at Bankstown in March
                                  1974 suggests that maybe the pilot had received a really bad landing out of it and, like golfers do
                                  to their clubs after hitting a bad shot, took it out on the poor aircraft itself!    I do not know what
                                  'CAC' was, but was doubtless an aero club.  The aircraft had passed on to Leasair Holdings (Pty)
                                  Ltd by the late 1970s.     Re-registered VH-DJM, it ran off the end of the runway at Bankstown,
                                  allegedly whilst a student pilot had selected the empty tank.  When repaired it became VH-DUM,
                                  and was acquired by its present owner, David Neaves.    David restored it in 2009 and once again
                                  had it re-registered it to -IAV.  Ian McDonell took a shot of it at Albion Park in August 2015.
