VH-TAT (3) Piper
VH-TAT was registered to the Tasmanian Aero Club at Launceston in May
1966. Chartair was
the club’s air charter
business and held the contract to provide aero medical flights on
the Royal Flying Doctor Service to the Bass Strait
islands. The view over the nose of a Cherokee
Six wasn't any better
than that of a tail dragger, as seen by David Carter’s photo above
Bathurst on the day of a Hardie Ferodo 500 car race, October 4, 1970.
The club had sold
the aircraft by the mid
1970s and it spent much of the next 40 years in
Queensland . In January
2017 it was current and based at Mount Beauty in North-East Victoria.
