VH-EAK (1)   Douglas DC-3CS1C3G       (c/n  12872)


                                           Built as a C-47A-20-DK, this DC-3 saw service with the RAAF with the call sign VHCIB.  It
                                           was assigned the serial A65-45.  It was civilianized in 1946 as VH-BAJ, but never carried that
                                           registration, going directly instead to Qantas as VH-EAK.  This photograph was taken at Mascot
                                           in 1953 just after the machine had been sold to the R.Thai Air Force.   Only the airline name had
                                           been removed at that time.   It was written off in a crash at Si Racha in 1980.
