VH-BAX  (1)   Avro 652A Anson 1 

                                This shot was taken at Moorabbin, circa 1949, as was the lower one from the Geoff Goodall
                                collection.  VH-BAX, ex MG656, was owned by Western Airways which flew a short-lived
                                scheduled passenger service between Melbourne and Warrnambool in 1947.  The Anson was
                                sold to Corio Air Freighters of Geelong, later going to Bass Island Airways of Geelong (owned
                                by Bill Brown,  who later started Brain & Brown Airfrieghters).   It was damaged beyond repair
                                when Belmont Common airfield at Geelong was overrun by record flooding of the Barwon River
                                in August, 1951, and officially struck-off the register in 1953.
