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.
