VH-ACF (1) Piper J3C-40 Cub
Just before WW II a number of American lightplanes began to arrive in
Australia. Of course,
immediately after the conflict, and with the huge cost involved,
dollars dried up and it would only
be in the late 1950s that US
products again began to be imported. This Cub was first
November 1938 and went, I believe, to the Canberra Aero
Club. This shot, from the R.C.
Strangman collection,, shows it being refueled at Canberra Airport,
circa 1939. It crashed at that
in November 1940 and was written off.
