Falcon (c/n 266)
sleek looking craft was formerly G-AEAG and was imported into Australia
in 1938. It
was impressed into RAAF duty during WW
II as A37-1. It was restored after the war and
I was fortunate in catching it in
the open at Moorabbin one bleak day in July of 1958 (above).
Below is a photograph from the Civil
Aviation Historical Society archives showing it in its
original livery back in
1938 (albeit sans trousers). Its present status is
there are reports that it still exists in NSW as a subject for
restoration. This is an
rare model and
hopefully, if it is still in one piece,
somebody will preserve it.
