Painted to replicate a Sabre flown by Lt Ken Miles, but actual identity is ex Indonesia AF F-8612 and RAAF A94-972. During restoration it was fitted with the rear fuselage of F-8607/A94-957. On loan to the Palm Springs Air Museum from Kermit Weeks since 2015.
Photo taken just after the accident. It was taking off heading for Darwin when it unfortunately ran into trouble. This Beech E18S was manufactured in 1958 and previously carried the US registration N753CW.
