Miles M.11A Whitney Straight
This Whitney Straight was originally G-AEVG
and made the long trip from England to Moorabbin,
south of Melbourne, Victoria, where these two shots were taken, in
1954. It was owned and
Bill Strauss and Bob Hantken on a trip which commenced on 13 August and
bourne on 17 October 1954, after sightseeing along the way*. My
lower shot was taken on 23 Oct,
after the aircraft arrived. Bill sold VH-EVG off after he arrived
and it was withdrawn from
very kindly sent me a report of the highlights of the trip.
It makes fascinating reading.
