VH-ILR  Beech 95-D55 Baron                           (c/n  TE-742)

                                   Formerly  N8109R, this aircraft was registered to the Beech agents Hawker de Havilland Australia
                                   Pty. Ltd in September 1969.         It was sold the following month to E.J. Shaw of Kempsey, NSW
                                   who was the owner of record when Greg Banfield took the above shot at Mascot in November 1969.
                                   The titling 'TWA Australia" is a complete mystery.  Was Mr. Shaw a TWA captain?   -ILR then had
                                   many owners over the years, and was in BPA's hands when Greg saw it again at Mascot in January
                                   1972, below.  . (I wonder why it wasn't re-registered in the VH-BP series?).   A year after this photo
                                   was taken it went to Civil Flying Services (W.A.) Pty. Ltd. at Jandakot, Perth.   It was sold by them
                                   in 1978 and returned to the east coast, although appears to be no longer registered.
