VH-UUM  B.A. Swallow II   (c/n  409)

                           

                             The above shot, showing this Swallow with its wings folded, was taken by Geoff Goodall at Parafield,
                             Adelaide in 1962.        Originally imported in 1935, the aircraft was listed as "under restoration" some
                             thirty years later.            Thirty years after that it was still "being restored" at Lilydale Airfield, Victoria.

                             taken in mid-2013.  A Pobjoy engine will be fitted.        The Cessna 180 bearing the re-allocated rego
                             VH-UUM has, mercifully, been sold in New Zealand, thus allowing this old bird to retain its original
                             identity!
