PK-AFB was part of the KNILM fleet until it crashed on February 4, 1938. Sistership PK-AFC visited Australia during the many years Dutch authorities sought approval to add Australia to the KLM/KNILM route map. When approval was finally received, KNILM was using Lockheed 14s and there is no record of -AFB ever visiting Australia. The photo is believed to be at one of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesian) ports used by Qantas on its Australia-Singapore service. Photo from: Hudson Fysh Collection/State Library of New South Wales

Formerly H-NADR (c/n 4992), an F.VIIa. Converted to F.VIIa/3m when chartered by American publisher Van Lear Black with the registration changed to H-NADP because Black had previously used F.VIIa H-NADP (4990) for a return flight to Batavia. F.VIIa/3m H-NADP (4992) used for an aborted flight to Cape Town in May 1928. Afterwards converted to F.VIIb/3m with new c/n 5105. To Black as G-AADZ 1 February 1929.

Charles Kingsford Smith lands Southern Cross on two engines. Starboard engine shut down when the centre engine exhaust manifold struck the prop (damaged blade pointing down). Port engine then began to run out of oil as -USU headed back to Sydney. Navigator PG (Bill) Taylor climbed out on the struts five times to transfer oil from the dead right engine to the dying left. Taylor awarded George Cross for his bravery. Later pioneered oceanic air routes from Australia to Africa and South America. Smith killed in November 1935.

VH-UMG towards the end of its career when it had the light-coloured fuselage it had when it crashed at Mascot (Sydney International) airport on November 23, 1936. The background appears to coastal with a high headland running down to the sea and a heavy swell rolling in. -UMG was being used for joyflights when it crashed and the location might not be an airfield at all but a flat area near a beach.

The Fokker C-2 is a variant of the successful Fokker F.VIIa-3m, with a larger fuselage and upgraded engines. Three C-2s were delivered to the United States Army Air Corps in 1927, serialed 26-202 to 26-204. The first of them, 26-202 as shown here, was modified to a long-range version and fitted with a larger wing (21.7m instead of 19.2m). It was named "Bird of Paradise" and used to make the first transpacific flight, 3860 km (2,400 miles) from Oakland to Honululu, on 1 June 1927. Photographer unknown.

This short-lived Australian National Airways was formed by Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm. It is not related to the later larger ANA that merged with Ansett in 1957. Smith and Ulm's airline failed after VH-UMF vanished between Sydney and Melbourne on March 21, 1933. It remained missing until October 1958 when the wreckage was found in the Snowy Mountains. The name "Southern Cloud" is missing in this photo but the distinctive rego font is identical to confirmed photos of it. The original photo may have been retouched to remove the name in the wake of the disappearance.
