Photograph from Gus Grulke
via Peter Gates. Archerfield, Brisbane, late 1940s.
This aircraft was built as a
C-47A-5-DK (42-92450) which went to the RAAF as A65-35 with
the war time call
sign VHCUI. It
was civilianized and allocated to Australian National Airways
in 1947. Ten
years later it
was reregistered VH-INI since DCA had
concern that the markings
with the then
Radio Call-Sign/Q-Code Rules. After the rules were liberalized
the company re-allocated VH-INA to a DC-6B, but not until 1964.
