Piper PA-30-160 Twin Comanche B
This Twin Comanche, carrying
Aviation Enterprises, Canberra titling on the fuselage, was visiting
far-off Perth, WA in May of 1969 when this
shot, from the Geoff Goodall collection was taken.
The aircraft had been imported new through
Piper dealers Ansett General Aviation at Bankstown
the prior January. It had several other owners before
crashing at Bourke, NSW on 2 August 1990.
The pilot had taken off in bad
weather, and then decided to abort the flight. He hit
when attempting to land on the reciprocal runway heading.
