Ex I-TROS, arrived in Australia with New Holland Airways and carrying migrants. Sold to Butler which disposed of it in 1956. Went to the US where it became N55L. In Italy it had been fitted with an air stair, which appears to have been the rectangular forward half of the standard double C-47 door hinged at the bottom. It was markedly larger than the rounded airstair doors Butler had in its other former C-47s.

Butler Air Transport publicity photo. Arthur Butler made his tiny home town of Tooraweenah a hub for his airline. Traffic from towns in NSW and southern Queensland fed into the airport for DC-3 services to Sydney. Tooraweenah vanished from the world's airline maps with Butler but was for a while a base for gliding over the Warrumbungle mountains seen in the background of the photo.

Butler operated from Cootamundra to Charleville to connect with mail flights from the UK. The mail was brought to Cootamundra and put on trains bound for Melbourne. The mail otherwise would have travelled via Brisbane and Sydney.

Butler operated from Cootamundra to Charleville to connect with mail flights from the UK. The mail was brought to Cootamundra and put on trains bound for Melbourne. The mail otherwise would have travelled via Brisbane and Sydney.

Crashed in landing at Schofields airport, Sydney, during crew training on June 3, 1947. The following month another DC-3 was registered VH-AOH (c/n 12790) and named RMA Warrumbungle. That aircraft had been converted to a 24-seater with an airstair passenger door and eight windows on each side of the cabin, one for each row of passengers. Behind -AOH in the photo are CAC Wackett trainers intended for civil conversion.

Butler's three Ambassadors did not survive the takeover by Ansett and VH-BUK returned to the UK as G-AMAE. It saw just eight months of service, a part of which was spent being repaired after it sank back into the runway at Canberra, gear up, during crew training on March 1, 1958.
