VH-AON   de Havilland DH.84A  Dragon                     (c/n  2019)


                                        Here's -AON at Moorabbin in December 1970, appropriately named "Puff" ( of Viet Nam era
                                        The Magic Dragon fame).   This photograph is by Neville Parnell (via the Brian Baker collection).
                                        VH-AON was delivered to the RAAF as A34-30 in 1942.   It was civilianized in 1947 and had
                                        several periods of inactivity, ending up in 1981 at the Air World display at Wangaratta.  When
                                        that enterprise went under it was acquired by Harvey McBain of Nelson, Vic, with whom it is still
                                        currently registered.   The in-flight photo below is from the Len McNeil collection (via Greg Weir)
                                        and shows -AON over what appears to be the Southern Highlands of PNG.
