                                   to 1937.     The above shot was taken at.Birdum Creek, NT.    Actually, this Moth was first
                                   registered to Qantas in June 1929.     It was sold to S. Zlotkowski of Muttaburra, Qld two
                                   months later, suggesting that the airline was also a de Havilland aircraft dealer/representative
                                   at the time.    Qantas bought it back in May 1930.   In 1937 it was sold to Light Aeroiplanes
