G-AUFS Airco DH.9
A rare shot from the Len Dobbin
collection, via the Civil Aviation Historical Society archives of an
ex WW I DH.9, first registered to
Matthews Aviation in Melbourne in March 1927. It was sold
that year to Bululo Goldfields Aeroplane Services Ltd and shipped to
New Guinea. It then
went to Morlae Airlines in 1929 and Pacific Aerial Transport in 1931.
Just when the above shot
was taken is
not stipulated. The ancient machine apparently was
repainted as VH-UFS some-
1932 although by October of 1934 its CofA lapsed and was never renewed.
