VH-AVM   Douglas DC-3CS!C3G    (c/n   9590)


                                This rare photograph comes from the Barry Maclean collection and is somewhat of an anachronism.
                                VH-AVM was a Guinea Airways aircraft but was apparently leased to Australian National Airways
                                in the 1950-53 period, who painted it in their full livery.  This aircraft was built as a C-47A-30-DL
                                (USAAF serial 42-23728) and was operated by the RAAF during WW II as A65-10 with the call
                                sign VHCTK. After six years of service with Guinea Airways/ANA it was sold, in July of 1953 to
                                Meteor Air Transport of Teterboro, N.J. as N1433V.   The somewhat washed-out image below is
                                courtesy of  the Library of South Australia collection and shows the aircraft as it was when operated
                                by Guinea.
