VH-WEB Ryan STM
This Ryan was
S-18 with the Netherlands East Indies Navy. In 1942 it was taken
on strength in
the RAAF as
A50-27. It was civilianized in April 1946 as VH-AGU. It was withdrawn from use
and then restored in June of 1957 as VH-WEB. The photo above is from
the Geoff Goodall
collection. Date and venue unknown. This aircraft
crashed at Taree, NSW on 6 April 1961, and
pilot/owner was killed. The passenger, Harvey Else an aero club
instructor, was badly injured.
image at the foot of the page was supplied by Harvey. The
remains of VH-WEB are, I
believe, in storage
at Tyabb, Victoria.
