VH-SVE  Piper PA-24-260 Comanche C                 (c/n   24-4849)

                                     The Comanche C can be recognized by its extended propellor shaft (hence the rather pointed nose),
                                     plus it also had the Comanche B's extra cabin window on either side.  This example was photographed
                                     by Geoff Goodall at Kalgoorlie, WA in January 1971 whilst the aircraft was with Leonora Air Charter
                                     based at Kalgoorlie and Leonora.  The centre building at rear is the modest airline passenger terminal
                                     for MMA's F-27 and F-28 services from Perth.  The building to the right was Flight Service and Pilot
                                     Briefing, these excellent services being later eliminated across outback Australia by politically driven
                                     restructuring of the Department of Civil Aviation.   Danny Tanner saw it at Adelaide International Air-
                                     port (below) in October 1981 in basically the same livery.       Not sure what Nashua did.    Anyway,
                                     -SVE, first registered in September 1969, is still current and registered to a private owner in NSW.

                                     come in from the US as N9350P.
