VH-AII Douglas DC-3CS1C3G
The very nice shot above is
from the John Hopton collection, while below is an image taken from
a Qantas postcard. This latter
shot purportedly shows -AII after
completing the last Qantas sched-
uled flight from Mt.
Archerfield on 1 April 1949. Six months later this
aircraft was to be
reregistered VH-EBI. -AII
was built as a C-47A-25-DK with USAAF serial 42-93683 and
assigned to the 9th Air Force in
the European theatre.
It was registered to Qantas on
1945. For a complete history of
it, go to Bob Smith's website at:
