VH-AAS  Miles M3A Falcon Major                           (c/n  209)


                                    From the album of Graham Schutt comes this rare shot of a Falcon Major.   His father, well
                                    known aircraft broker Arthur Schutt (standing in front of the machine) had purchased the air-
                                    craft via an advertisement in a U.K. trade journal.   The M.3A (as G-ADZR) was in South
                                    Africa at the time, and Arthur had it shipped to Australia in July 1936.   VH-AAS was written
                                    off in a crash at Hatches Creek in the Northern Territory on 23 July 1940.
