G-AUEY   de Havilland D.H.50                                     (c/n  73)

                                         The above shot is a close up of a larger panorama (reproduced below) from the family album of
                                         Patrick Fels.   It was probably taken at Langley Park, near Perth, circa 1928       G-AUEY was
                                         registered to WA Airways Ltd. of Perth on 13 April 1926, and was actually the D.H.50 prototype
                                         (formerly G-EBFN), powered by a 230 hp Siddeley Puma.    The two photos (3 and 4) show the
                                         D.H. 50 as G-EBFN in England.  The upper one is from the Frank Walters collection (via Geoff
                                         Goodall) whilst the one at the foot of the page from my own collection shows it at Stag Lane in 1925.
                                         It changed from G-AUEY to VH-UEY somewhere around 1931 and was withdrawn from use in
                                         1933 although not officially stricken from the register until 9 April 1935.
