V-Tail Bonanza VH-ILT photographed after arrival at Lilydale Airfield (YLIL) in Feb 1974. 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 03Feb2009 was the 50th Anniversary of 'The Day the Music Died'. RIP.
