VH-UOY  de Havilland D.H.75A Hawk Moth            (c/n  706)


                                    The two photographs on this page are from the John Oxley Library, State Library
                                    of Queensland collection.  This Hawk Moth was owned by Aircrafts Pty Ltd of
                                    Brisbane from the time it was first registered in September 1930 until it was written
                                    off in a crash at Archerfield whilst making a forced landing there on 12 May 1935.
                                    The print above was signed by E.J. Brunckhurst who went on to become Chief
                                    Maintenance Engineer for TAA in 1953.  I suspect he was chief mechanic for Air-
                                    crafts Pty Ltd when that photograph was taken.  I am not sure when or where the
                                    shot below was taken.  It appears that the rego has disappeared from the fuselage.
                                    It could pre-date the shot above, although is more like an early 1930s image.
