VH-AIJ  (1)   Douglas DC-3CS1C3G                              (c/n  12667)


                               Here's a rare shot. It shows a QEA (Qantas Empire Airlines) DC-3 not bearing a VH-E series
                               registration.  This shot was taken at Mascot, in early 1949, before all  QEA aircraft were
                               re-registered in that latter sequence.  The fuzzy image below, from the Geoff Goodall collection,
                               was taken at Tennant Creek, NT circa 1948.  This DC-3 was built as a Douglas C-47A-15-DK
                               at Santa Monica, California in 1942 for the USAAF as 42-92824.    It was re-registered
                               VH-EBJ in September, 1949.  In 1953 it was sold to the Royal Thai Air Force becoming
                               L2-14/96, and was withdrawn from use following an accident at Korat, Thailand in 1956.
