VH-ANG (1)   Douglas DC-4-1009      'Palana'                          (c/n  42918)


                                              I am indebted to Barrie Colledge for this rare shot of the first VH-ANG.  It came from
                                              a series of post cards put out in the 1940s. As stated under VH-ANF (1) it was an ex
                                             Western Air Lines DC-4-1009, and only remained with ANA for eight months before
                                              passing to British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines as VH-BPD.  However, in 1949
                                              QANTAS acquired it from BCPA and it was re-registered in the sequence for that airline
                                              becoming VH-EBM.
