VH-UQP  de Havilland D.H.83 Fox Moth               (c/n 4020)

                                    The nice shot above is from the Wally Civitco collection, whilst the two lower photos (taken at
                                    the same locale) are from the Sarah Chinnery collection via the National Library of Australia.
                                    They all depict the Fox Moth whilst it was working for W.R. Carpenter and Co Ltd's service out
                                    of Wau, New Guinea.    The diminutive airliner was named 'Jacqueline'.    The manual refueling
                                    operation seen in the shot below was de rigueur for the time and, in fact, still is today in some of
                                    the more remote PNG strips.  In 1936 this DH83 was sold to Mandated Airlines.  It was written
                                    off when it crashed in the Bitoi Valley, New Guinea on 17 November 1941.
