(1) DHC-1 Chipmunk
When Darryl Connor took the above shot in August 1961 at Broadmeadow
aerodrome, his intent
was to obtain a close up of the
Newcastle Aero Club's insignia. Whether he ever took a full shot
it is not known, but the above is the
only one Geoff Goodall has acquired in his collection. In comp-
aring this badge to the
current one, it is evident that the scroll under the 'wings' was
in those days, and was
lengthened when the club received 'Royal' charter. -RNI joined
the club in
September 1956 as ex WB675.
It was sold to the Royal Victorian Aero Club in 1961 as VH-RVH.
In fact, in my entry of it as
such, it is still wearing the Newcastle Aero Club's livery.
