VH-ABR     Douglas DC-3-232A    'Kanana'                             (c/n  2029)

                            This is a pre-War original DC-3 fitted with Wright Cyclone engines.     It was originally delivered to
                            Australian National Airways in October, 1938 and named "Kanana".   During the war it saw service
                            with the RAAF as A30-3.    It is seen above at Essendon in 1955..  It is Australia's oldest airworthy
                            'real' DC-3, the oldest being VH-ANR which is static at the Queensland Air Museum at Caloundra.
                            Seen below is a nice Peter Gates color shot of it in latter days in Airlines of South Australia livery.
                            Beneath that is a contemporary shot by Martyn Covey taken at the Point Cook Air Show in February,
                            2009, wherein it is dressed up in immediate post-war Ansett livery (although it never flew with the
                            original Ansett Airways).
