Here's a "better than nothing" image of
a Junkers F.13 after an accident in New Guinea, date
and venue unknown. Image from the CAHS archives in
Melbourne. VH-UTS was originally
registered in the U.K. as G-ABDC on August 23, 1930. It was named
"Papua". I have not
been able to glean the exact historic timetable, but in order to be
imported into New Guinea,
(some sort of import restriction) it was first
reregistered in Sweden as SE-AEC in 1934..
In March 1935 it became VH-UTS for the Lutheran
Mission. Clearly it was repaired from
the above mishap, since on 14 September 1939 it was flown (stolen?) by
two German pilots
to Merauke, Dutch New
Guinea, rather, I suppose, than face being interned.
happened to -UTS
after that is not clear. Scrapped, there, no doubt.
