Graham Schott, in his familiar red hat, prepares to launch KR-2 VH-XXS The Beast on 13 December 2010 to intercept Wirraway VH-WIR which was approaching Caloundra on delivery to QAM. Stewart Myers, a QAM member, went along as photographer. It was never imagined at that time that the aeroplane would cross the road to join the Queensland Air Museum in the background but it is fitting that an aeroplane which is part of the fabric of aviation in Caloundra should have such an honourable retirement.
