Notes:

Close cropped front view of V-Tail Beechcraft V35B Bonanza VH-ILT Cn D-9105 taxying in at Lilydale Airfield (YLIL) in Feb1974. (Footnote: VH-ILT also appeared at the 2018 Lilydale Airshow. A gap of 44 years between sightings at Lilydale YLIL.) A similar aircraft (Reg N3794N, named 'Miss American Pie') crashed near Mason City Iowa, USA, soon after midnight - on 03Feb1959. The crash claimed the lives of Rock and Roll Legends: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper.) They were immortalised in Don Maclean's tribute ballad (Bye Bye Miss) 'American Pie'. Hence, Tuesday 03Feb2015 was the 56th Anniversary of 'The Day the Music Died'. RIP. Low res photo.
