VH-TAE  Douglas DC-3CS1C3G                                      (c/n  12056)


                                              Built as a C-47A-1-DK Skytrain 42-92274, this aircraft went to the RAAF as
                                              A65-29 with the wartime call sign VHCTZ.  Civilianized in 1946, it went to TAA
                                              and was named 'Gregory'. . When my shot above was taken at Essendon in 1956
                                              it had been relegated to cargo duties.  In 1960 rs later it was transferred by TAA
                                              to its New Guinea 'Sunbird' services and reregistered VH-SBL.
