Using Avro 504 parts, the 547 was a five-seater with an extra set of wings to lift the heavier load. Proved unsuitable for Australian conditions and ended up as a chicken coop in Sydney. May never have been used on Qantas services. A second more powerful 547 for the UK Air Ministry was deemed too slow and too unstable and was quickly scrapped. Photo from: State Library of Queensland

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.

Originally G-ACKY, this aircraft was exported to Australia in 1938, becoming VH-ADV(1). Passing through a succession of owners, it was struck off after an accident in 1955. However, the following year the Royal Aero Club of New South Wales restored it as VH-RSL. Two years later it was sold and changed again to VH-BAH. Still current as of 2019.

The Warrigal I was built at the Government Experimental Aircraft Factory in Sydney, flying for the first time on December 4, 1928. Delivered to the RAAF at Point Cook in January 1929. It had amassed only 40 hours when it suffered undercarriage damage in a heavy landing. The photo is believed to be that accident. Already assessed as unacceptable for RAAF service because of its dangerous spin characteristics, the Warrigal I was written off. Photo from: Hood Collection/State Library of New South Wales
