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

The future VH-BOB after its disposal by the RAAF. The plan was for it to become VH-AGV but that did not happen and it was ferried from Sydney to Jerilderie in rural NSW in August 1964. It was reported to have made some unapproved flights but fell into disrepair. Warbird pilot Bob Eastgate acquired it in 1970 and it returned to the air in 1976.

Australian Arthur Butler, in the leather helmet and coat, flew G-ABRE from the UK to Australia in a record time of 9 days 2 hours 20 minutes, starting October 31, 1931. After reaching Mascot airport (now Sydney International), Butler undertook an eight-week publicity tour of Australia, returning to Mascot several times. G-ABRE was stored at the end of the tour, then shipped back to the UK in June 1932. New owner Victor Smith made several record attempts until -ABRE was WFU after a forced landing in 1934. Cancelled in 1945 in a post-war register clean-out.
