Avro 643 Cadet A6-10
Built by A.V. Roe at Newton Heath, Manchester, this Cadet
was shipped to Australia in early 1936.
It went to No 1 Service Flying
Training School. The above image, via the Goulburn War Memorial
Museum collection shows it
at the end of a loop. In April 1945 it was sold, by the
Commission, to a private owner in Melbourne as VH-AMM. As
such, in May 1946, it
took off from a
country strip at Melton, Victoria and struck high tension power lines,
plunging to the
ground. Both pilot
and passenger were killed in the resultant fire.
