Piper chieftain for tender at Albury

Does anyone know the story behind this USA registered Chieftain with Dutch Air Transport markings that is up for tender by Albury Council.

This aircraft came up in a thread some years back but I'm buggered if I can find it. It was looking very tired in 2009 when I last saw it sitting outside there.

Itís been seen sitting at various spots on the field at Albury for probably ten years or more. Tender? Theyíd have to pay me to take it to the tip.

Probably worth what two core engines are worth less cost to disassemble OR ABOUT 2K tops

So the story i've heard.. T'was the bicentennial Air Race, said aircraft had some sort of issues at AY. Owner or Pilot left it there for recification and jumped on RPT outta there. Been sitting in various locatins on the aerodrome since. Albury City Council has been chasing this up for years, followed the correct legal channels, and now can dispose of the eyesore.

Hmmmm.

I was in a team that competed in the Bicentennial Air Race. I donít recall seeing that aircraft and I donít recall Albury being on the route.

My recollection could be inaccurate though - looong time ago.
