Ex USAF 51-11698, became N7499C in Oct 1957 and reregistered to N888E a month later. This Beech was operated by Alaska Aeronautical Industries from 1961 until 1969 and still carries their titles, albeit very faded. It was later acquired by the Upper Valley Aviation Group and restoration was attempted at Big Lake, AK. Work on it had been halted by early 2002 and the aircraft was abandoned as seen here. By 2017 it was still at Big Lake, in much the same condition.

VH-CLI now with the Central Australian Aviation Museum. Bessie Springs is on McArthur River Station and was once a regular stop for Connellan. Since those days a new airport with a sealed runway and apron has been built 20 miles away at the McArthur River Mine.
In its heyday Rosamond airport was used by film makers for movie scenes and commercials and was renowned for its gliding. Since this photo was taken it has been transformed into a residential air park development.
