Photo Comment

VH-TMK was lost on February 28, 1998 when its wing failed near Wellard, Western Australia, during aerobatics.The pedigree of -TMK is a mystery. Msn T250 was allocated to a rebuild of msn 83250. However 83250 is VH-CXV. A possibility is the plate stamped T250 was among the components used in building -TMK (it was first registered in August 1980) while VH-CXV still has the original British DH plate with the serial 83250.
