G-AUCO Royal Aircraft Factory
DCA had very little on
this machine when I copied the details from the old ledgers in 1953.
The entry merely
said "Crashed before Registration". Well, the rego was
on before it
overturned during a forced landing near Branxton, NSW in July 1921 as
image above attests.
It was rebuilt as G-AUDV and "officially" entered into the register in
November 1922, possibly as a
landplane. It then had a series of owners in Queensland and
NSW before it was
written off when damaged by high winds at Sydney in 1931.
