VH-ULC  de Havilland D.H.60G Gipsy Moth                  (c/n  898)


                                     This Moth had a long history of ownership from the date of its first registration in February 1929
                                     until stricken off the register in 1955.  The shot above is from the Charles Ohlson collection, (via
                                     the Civil Aviation Historical Society archives), whilst that immediately below is via Bill White who
                                     gleaned the photograph from the son of S. Parisotto of West Kempsey, NSW, that gentleman
                                     having owned the Moth from August 1937 until he sold it to the Northern NSW Aero Club in Feb
                                    1938.   The image at the foot of the page, from the Roger McDonald collection shows the Moth
                                     over Melbourne in the 1830s while being flown by Frank Roberts.  Incidentally the upper photo
                                     appears to be a CofA official image, although is believed to have been taken at Essendon in 1934.
                                     The Northern NSW Aero Club pranged it near Kempsey, NSW in March of 1938 although it was
                                     repaired by Airwork Co at Archerfield who then sold it to Queensland Air University.  They were
                                     the owners in the early days of WW II (although, oddly, it was not impressed).          It was sold to
                                     A. Tulloch of Cobar, (outback NSW) in 1951.   VH-ULC was damaged beyond repair in a gale at
                                     Cobar in February 1955, although its remains were reputed to be at Albury, NSW it the end of the
                                     last millennium.
