                                      when David Carter photographed it at Schofields in 1984 and still with it when it suffered
                                      accidents in July 1986 and again in 2008.     The 1984 accident was on July 1, 1986 at

                                      away in November that year but it is not known if there was a connection.     –PPA was
                                      removed from the register after the Crookwell crash.
