VH-UVI  de Havilland D.H.89A Dragon Rapide                  (c/n  6318)


                                      VH-UVI was imported in April 1936 for Adelaide Airways.  It is seen above in this shot from
                                      the Geoff Goodall collection at Parafield just after being assembled.    On 1st July 1936 it flew
                                      the inaugural Forrest-Adelaide section as part of the takeover of the WAA Perth-Adelaide
                                      service by Adelaide Airways.  Shortly afterwards Adelaide Airways was merged into the newly
                                      formed ANA, whereupon it was named 'Moogana', as seen in the rather poor ANA image below.

                                      showing -UVI at Parafield circa 1940 after it had been sold to Guinea Airways, although it
                                      appears to be still carrying the ANA pennant on the rudder.   In the background is another GAL
                                      Rapide, VH-UUO.  Shortly after this shot was taken VH-UVI was impressed into the RAAF as
                                      A33-2 whilst -UUO became A33-1.
