VH-URO  de Havilland D.H.84A Dragon II                      (c/n  6068)


                                          VH-URO was delivered new to WA Airways on 21 April 1934.   Eight months later (at
                                          the end of December 1934) it was sold to W.R. Carpenter and Co Ltd of Salamaua, New
                                          Guinea.  Just why it was sold off so quickly I am not sure.   On 30 September 1935 it
                                          crashed at Black Cat Creek near Wau, NG and was written off.   The above rather
                                          uncontrasty image was acquired from MacRobertson Miller Aviation back in the 1940s
                                          and was obviously taken when the aircraft was part of the WA Airways fleet.  Wally
                                          Civitco's image below, on the other hand, was taken it situ in New Guinea, circa 1934.
