VH-USG was being delivered to Qantas when it crashed soon after departing Longreach killing the three crew and one passenger. As can be seen in the photo, the fin had failed. The problem was a defective fin-trim mechanism and similar faults were found in the rest of the Qantas DH86 fleet. Poor quality control at DH to blame. -USG was neither registered in the UK nor Australia at the time but was being ferried on a UK Certificate of Airworthiness.

Abandoned at Allahabad, Pakistan, on December 26, 1946 while being ferried to the UK. Crew feared imminent failure of the tail. Between the time of the photo and being abandoned, VH-USW had served with the RAAF as an ambulance. It suffered a couple of significant accidents with Holyman's before the war. Postwar Qantas rejected -USW due to its poor condition and it went to MMA in Western Australia.

VH-USE was the only DH86 in the Qantas fleet when its tail failed near Belmont, nine miles from Brisbane on February 2, 1942. Nine lives lost. When the RAAF returned impressed DH86s to Qantas their fins were strengthened before entering service. The loss of -USE added to the unease over the integrity of the DH86 airframe after earlier structural failures. Photo from: State Library of Queensland

When VH-USC arrived at Darwin in October 1934 work was proceeding at full speed to finish the new Qantas hangar in time for the Mildenhall-Melbourne air race later that month. VH-USC was sold to MMA in July 1938, then went to the RAAF in 1940 as A31-5. It returned to the register and Qantas in March 1942. Crashed Darwin October 9, 1944. Parap airport closed in 1946 when civil operations were transferred to the RAAF base. Hangar now a car museum in MacDonald Street. The runway became Ross Smith Avenue.

The QEA DH.89 fleet was used to connect at Singapore with Imperial Airways flights from the UK. Empire flying boats replaced the DH.89s and Qantas sold -USD to MMA in Western Australia in July 1938. In January 1939 it was sold to Tata and Sons, India, as VT-AKZ. It would be impressed into the RAF as AX800. Soon after returning to civil operations it was struck off the Indian register.
