VH-UYB  Douglas DC-2-210  (c/n  1563)


                              This DC-2 was imported new for Australian National Airways, Ltd. in 1937, who named it
                              "Pengana".   Although it had a mishap in 1939 (it crashed into the Cooks River after overrunning
                              the runway at Mascot Airport in September of 1939), VH-UYB went on to serve faithfully
                              (mainly on the Adelaide - Melbourne route) until it was broken up in January 1948.     At the
                              foot of the page is a rare shot of -UYB reposing in the Cooks River in September 1939 from
                              his father's album by contributor John Dunne.    The lower close-up shot is from the Maurice
                              Austin collection, also circa 1939, while image # 3 is via the State Library of New Soith Wales
