A flight of three Rangoons flew from Basra (Iraq) to Melbourne to mark the centenary of the Victorian capital. The feat was overshadowed by the Mildenhall-Melbourne air race, the DH.88 Comet racers and the drama involving KLM DC-2 PH-AJU. According to contemporary reports, the trio of Rangoons were anchored off St Kilda beach, not at the RAAF's flying boat base at Point Cook. Photo from: State Library of Victoria
