VH-UUX  de Havilland D.H.87B Hornet Moth         (c/n  8078)


                                     This Hornet was imported in 1936 for the Royal Aero Club of NSW (then at Mascot).   It
                                     somehow escaped being impressed during WW II and, after several private owners, wound
                                     up in 1961 with the Warwick Aero Club in south Queensland.   It was unfortunately destroyed
                                     in a hangar fire at Toowoomba, Qld on 29 August 1962.   It is seen above post-war, while
                                     the image below, from the files of the State Library of New South Wales, show it in original
                                     livery, with the RACNSW.
