This beautiful, magnificent and historic beast has recently emerged from restoration to fly again. Powered by a Lycoming R-680 of 245 hp, she was imported by Vacuum Oil (later Mobil, as you can see under the wings) and registered on 13 Oct 1936. Used as a utility aircraft until sold in 1939. Impressed by RAAF 1941 as A38-1. Demobbed and sold 1948. Several owners until re-registered VH-KAF 1957. Ended up in Drage Airworld museum at Wangaratta & sold to present owner several years ago when museum collapsed.

I Knew this aircraft when it was owned by the Youl family in Tasmania many years ago. It was one of my favourite kites wheni was a boy. The quality of the image and the great choice of angle for the shot make it one of the best static aircraft pictures I have seen in a long time. Ah! Nostalgia. I am an 85 year old Ex R.A.F. Pilot and another John Bailey.
