VH-UUR has been VH- registered since 1935 and its early years were with the Divine Word Mission (Roman Catholic) in Papua New Guinea. It escaped the Japanese advance during World War II by flying to Australia. After the war it was sold to Alex Oliver, at Port Macquarie. He replaced the little Pobjoy radial with a lighter, more reliable Continental flat-four. Oliver's displays in the Klemm were famous, ending as they usually did with a deliberate deadstick landing. It was a habit that drew the ire of authorities, who wanted these arrivals reported as engine failures. -UUR was current in 2018.
