VH-UHE de Havilland D.H.50A
(c/n [QANTAS] 4)
Qantas built four D.H.50As and three Armstrong
Siddeley Jaguar radial engined powered
from de Havillands. This 50A was issued its CofA in May
and given the name 'Atalanta'.
The registration had been changed to VH-UHE
by August of
1930. However, at the foot of the page is a lo-res pre-1930 shot
of it from the
Archives (B. Dobbie collection) showing it still as G-AUHE.
This aircraft was written
in a crash 10 miles
Winton, Queensland on 3
October 1934. The historic

Library of Australia collection,
shows -UHE arriving at Bris-
bane on 8 May 1931 after the first
Townsville to Brisbane Air
Mail flight. Pilot was L.J. Brain.
