VH-UZI   Messerschmitt Bf198B Taifun                       (c/n  992)


                                  This Bf108B was purchased by Guinea Airways in 1937, ostensibly for charter work, especially in
                                  support of mining operations in W.A.  The nice air-to-air of it immediately below is from the Barry
                                  Berkinshaw collection.     After several minor accidents it was offered for sale early in 1940 and was
                                  sold in the Netherlands East Indies.  Shipped to Soerabaya, it was written off when it crashed into a
                                  mountain in NEI in 1942.  It would have been captured and impounded by the Japanese invasion of
                                  that port city in any case had it remained in one piece.
