Avro 643 Cadet  A6-10                                             (c/n  859)


                                  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 Commonwealth
                                  Disposals 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.
