Percival P.50 Prince (c/n P43)
This is actually the third VH-AGF:
The first was the D.H.60X Cirrus Moth VH-UHB, which
was to have recived that
marking during WW II but,
in the event, went to the Dutch East Indies as PK-SAS.
The second was a D.H.94 Moth
Minor, and thus far I have been unable to dig up a
photograph of it.
The above shot was taken by Dudley McDermott at Hobart in
1957. My own shot (below),
was taken at Essendon
shortly after it arrived from the U.K. and shows it as G-AMLW.
number of Percival Prince aircraft were used in the aerial survey role
and, in fact, this
particular machine did a
stint surveying the oil fields of Venezuela
(where it flew as YV-P-AEB
before going out
toAustralia for a contract with Hunting Aerosurveys
