VH-ILM    Beech 95-D55 Baron                                       (c/n TE-750)

                                   Formerly N2326A, VH-ILM was registered in October 1969    . The 1976 register shows it with
                                   Trans-West Air Charter out of Jandakot.   When David Carter saw it at Bathurst in October 1981
                                   it was with Coconut Airways, believed to be based at Proserpine.  It was on a flight from Proserpine
                                   to Brampton Island on May 18, 1985, that –ILM was damaged when the gear collapsed on landing.
                                   It was repaired but was written off in an accident near Bankstown on March 3, 2000.  The pilot had
                                   decided to divert to Bathurst after weather conditions prevented him reaching Bankstown.     As he
                                   started climbing back to cruise height both engines failed when the auxiliary fuel tanks ran out of fuel.
                                   The pilot was seriously injured and –ILM extensively damaged in the forced landing.
