VH-BFI  Avro 652A Anson 1


                                  Another rare shot from Geoff Goodall's collection, especially for airline historian enthusiasts such
                                  as myself, is this Anson in the markings of Butler Air Transport Pty. Ltd. taken at Sydney's Mascot
                                  Airport, circa 1948.     BAT sold it off in 1950 to Overland Air Services of Condobolin NSW who
                                  flew it on passengers services until sadly it crashed in the Sydney suburb of Padstow on 13 January
                                 1952 during a short positioning flight from Bankstown to Mascot, killing the OAS captain as well as
                                 the air hostess.
