VH-UUM was registered in 1935 and withdrawn from use in 1947. It returned to the register in 1957 only to be withdrawn from use again in 1965. In 2014 it returned to the register after a full restoration and remained current in 2018.
VH-AAB was a British-built version of the German Klemm Swallow. It came to Australia in 1937 from India , where it had been registered VT-AIG. The picture was taken in the Marshall Airways hangar, where the Swallow was being checked before returning to the register after a rebuild. That is a genuine Bf109G in the background along with a DH84 Dragon and Marshall's Avro Cadet VH-AGH. VH-AAB was still registered in 2017.
