VH-UAN de Havilland
original of this photograph, from the John Oxley Library, State Library
Queensland collection, appears to have been signed by a W. Gardner.
Moth was a Queensland Aero Club machine from its first registration
August 1932 until its demise in 1937, it would seem that Mr. Gardner
a club member, rather than owner of the aircraft. On 19 June 1937
this Moth collided in
mid-air with VH-UAV approximately 1/2 mile
aerodrome, and was stricken off the register.
An earlier prang was
recorded in the Brisbane
Courier Mail for 29 September 1933 a clipping of which
appears below. It
was out of action due to this mishap until 4 January 1934.
