VH-MWB  Mooney M.20E Super 21                  (c/n  1104)


                                      Originally N3397X, this machine was imported into Australia in August 1966 as VH-TMI for
                                      Mooney agents Winterbottom Tractors of Perth.    It was sold to farmer M.W. Blakeney who
                                      re-registered it VH-MWB in October 1966, and based it on his property near Geraldton WA.
                                      Geoff Goodalls's shot was taken at Perth Airport in February 1971.    It was later sold to an
                                      owner in Queensland and, I believe, written off in the late 1970s when its pilot ran out of gas
                                      and it ditched into the Pacific somewhere off the east coast of Newcastle.
