Few photos exist of the only piston-engine Porter to grace the Australia register. It was based in Papua New Guinea and became P2-UIE when that country adopted its own register in May 1984. It was used in support of the Catholic Divine Word Mission missionaries.

Built in Canada for the USAAF as 44-34081. Civilianised for Macao Air Transport as VR-HDH. Purchased by TAA in 1962 for its New Guinea 'Sunbird' operation, re-registered with undercarriage removed as VH-SBV. Aircraft flew services around New Guinea coast until 1966 when competition from land-based aircraft made the flying boat operation uneconomic. Originally intended for a New Guinea museum but the remains were purchased in 1979 for MOTAT. The aircraft is presently at the RNZAF Museum, Wigram where it is under long-term rebuild to represent an RNZAF machine. (Jim Eames photo)
