The Hudson was the military version of the Electra airliner and entered service with Coastal Command in 1939 on anti-submarine and reconnaisance duties. This particular aircraft was delivered to the RAAF in 1942 and actually was responsible for two Japanese kills during WWII. After the war this airframe was placed on the Austrailan register as VH-SMM and -AGJ before returning to the UK, firstly to the Strathallan Collection and then the Hendon Museum.
