No explanation as to what happened here but the proximity to the hangars suggests VH-UNF has been blown over in a storm. It was repaired and in September 1934 sold to Ansett Airways. -UNF became one of the aircraft lost in a hangar fire at Essendon airport on February 28, 1939. Photo from: National Library of Australia

Photo believed to date from about 1929 when G-AUAE was reregistered VH-UAE. At the time it was operated by the Australian Aero Club. The timber building at the right is the original aero club and was replaced by a more substantial building on a different site in 1930. The old club building was then removed and the area became apron. The hangar is Government Hangar No.1, which stood out as it had the airport name, Mascot, painted in the roof. VH-UAE remains registered in 2019. Photo from: Hood Collection/State Library of New South Wales
