VH-UXM  Airspeed AS.6H Envoy I  (c/n  29)


Formerly G-ACVI, this Airspeed Envoy was actually Ansett Airways' second machine (the first was
                               the Fokker F.XI Universal VH-UTO).  It was used on the Hamilton - Melbourne route in 1937.
                               The shot above was taken at Essendon, Melbourne in 1949, after it had been "put out to pasture"
                               (literally).   Below are a couple of photographs from the archives of the Civil Aviation Historical
                               Society (Ohlson Collection) showing the aircraft in more productive days at Essendon in the 1930s.
                               A shot of -UXM appears in the photo illustrating the Moth VH-UGV.
