This view of
VH-MQD by Geoff Goodall shows it at Moorabbin in May 1963, having just
Moorabbin Piper dealer Pipeair Pty Ltd by the Latrobe Valley Aero Club
month on a new Comanche 180.
A deft touch of paint had changed the registration
former VH-MOD to allow the club to use that
registration on their new machine. Greg Banfield's
image (below) taken some twenty years later at Bankstown in October
1983 shows it sporting not
only a rally
number but also tip tanks. In 2005 it was re-registered VH-FFE
and, as such is seen
the shot at the foot of the page by Ian McDonell taken at the
Caboolture air show in August 2011.
