G-AUBZ had a remarkably long career for an aircraft of its era. Registered in 1921, it was around long enough to became VH-UBZ. It was initially owned by legendary pilot Ray Parer, then went to Qantas and on to Matthews Aviation at Essendon. It remained in use into the late 1930s before being struck off the register in 1940, Photo from: National Library of Australia

VH-UKN had a chequered career with many prangs during its service with the Australian Aero Club (Victoria) and its successors, the Victorian Aero Club and the Royal Victorian Aero Club. In this photo the Gipsy Moth carries the Australian Aero Club logo on the forward fuselage, with the text "Victoria Section" below it. The aircraft was withdrawn from use in 1940.

This is the prototype of the M.3 Falcon, developed from the M.2 Hawk. Just a week after its first flight, it started in the great London to Melbourne Air Race but despite this, there are few photos of this aircraft. Pilot Harold Brook took a month to arrive in Melbourne and did complain about the lack of attention he got. His return flight to England in 1935 was very much faster.

Despite being registered VH-TMQ for several months before the photo, this C-47 was delivered to Essendon in its full RAAF markings. Stripped back to bare metal but then abandoned. Finally restored in the late 1990s and flown again in 2000. Now used for nostalgia flights.
