Pilot graduation ceremony at Lydda (Lod, now Ben Gurion Airport). VQ-PAH was one of three Taylorcrafts on the Mandatory Palestine register, used as trainers by PFS (Palestine Flying Service). VQ-PAF, farthest away, is a Fokker F.XVIII, ex PH-AIQ and OK-AIQ. It was to be used by Hevra Avirit (Commercial Aviation Company) to transport fresh fish from Aqaba, but written of on 13 January 1939, before the photo date, after a bad landing following a display flight. Also seen are DH.89 Rapide SU-ABQ, AW.15 Atalanta G-ABTJ and HP.42 G-AAUE. Photo from: Library of Congress

VQ is for Mandatory Palestine. Photo taken at Lydda airfield, today Ben Gurion Airport. The airport opened in 1936 but was 'still anything but complete' in early 1938. Indeed the photo must be from 1937 or 1938 as VQ-PAB was not registered until March 1937. There are other photos of this aircraft taken during the inauguration of Tel Aviv - Sde Dov airport, where the Palestine Airways flights from Haifa moved in 1938. Photo from: Library of Congress
