Unfortunately, and according to BBC WORLD NEWS(October 3th 2012) this plane crashed in Australia while flying to Brisbane. The pilot had had an accident in 1954 where he lost his brother and father. He made a Phoenix out of this same plane and got it in the air again. It flew for 58 more years, untill he himself, perished along with his wife and two other couples. May god bless them forever.
