                                     Goodall.    Port Augusta Air Services Pty Ltd, to whom it had been registered new during the prior
                                     month, later went on to become PAGAS Airlines.  This Cherokee Six then had several other owners
                                     before crashing in mountainous terrain near Toowoomba, Qld on 1 September 1989.     The aircraft
                                     had been hired to fly from Archerfield to the races at Birdsville when it appears that water in the fuel
                                     lines had caused engine failure.
