VH-UVB in the aftermath of a Japanese air raid on January 21, 1942. In March Salamaua and the airstrip were occupied by the Japanese army. The airstrip was won back by Australian troops in September 1943. The airstrip was abandoned after the war. The jungle has reclaimed it but the area is still pock-marked with bomb craters

VH-UVB in the aftermath of a Japanese air raid on January 21, 1942. In March Salamaua and the airstrip were occupied by the Japanese army. The airstrip was won back by Australian troops in September 1943. The airstrip was abandoned after the war. The jungle has reclaimed it but the area is still pock-marked with bomb craters

VH-CMY was uniquely modified to allow the rear fuselage and engine to swing sideways to permit the loading of long objects. It served with Ansett-MAL from 1965 to 1968 when it was sold to Territory Airlines. It remained in Papua New Guinea until 1978 (becoming P2-CMY on independence). -CMY returned to the Australian register and was finally cancelled in 1999. The museum rescued it from the fire dump at Coolangatta airport in 2009.
