VH-INX soon after arrival from Melbourne-Essendon. It had been trucked to Melton to be converted to an airport cafe. Sometime in 1972 the undercarriage retracted and it lay on its belly with the Ansett-ANA markings blacked out. Back on its undercarriage the tail was painted white but from then on it was all downhill. Parts went missing including the cargo doors and the rudder and the paint flaked off. INX eventually fell back on its tail and remained that way until scrapped in the early 1990s.

This was the last Parrot delivered to the RAAF, on 25 June 1982, and ferried as ZK-EUZ. It has been retained for the RAAF Museum and is seen here bringing the Museum pilots to Melton for an early-morning briefing before the Houdini-Centenary Air Show.

Warren Stewart rolling at the Houdini-Centenary Air Show. Together with aerobatic legend Chris Sperou in Pitts VH-XPS, Warren in VH-GIP forms one half of the Skyblazers formation aerobatics team. This aircraft was registered new on 28 June 1962 - Warren reckons he probably helped to assemble it when he worked for importer De Havilland Australia at Bankstown in the '60s!

This immaculate aircraft was in the hands of the same owner for 30 years until sold a couple of years ago. It's currently Moorabbin-based and preserved pretty much exactly as it was when it was built in 1966. Originally registered N1467F, it probably never wore that rego as it was registered in Australia on 27 October 1966. Seen here departing after the Houdini-Centenary Air Show.

This Moth Minor is actually a pre-war civil import. It was allocated the UK rego G-AFNN to the Hull Aero Club in 1939 but appears to have been deregistered the same day. It was registered VH-ACR on 17 Jan '40 until impressed as the last of the RAAF's Moth Minors A21-42 in Nov '41. Returned after the war to VH-ACR '45 until withdrawn in '47. Restored at Caboolture '03-'08. Seen here getting airborne for a display at the Houdini-Centenary Air Show.

My old mate Tony Curzon departing in 'Struts' after the Houdini-Centenary airshow. This aircraft was the third strut-braced Drifter built. It was registered on 7 February 1994 and my logbook shows that I first flew it on 27 March, almost brand new!

This lovely aircraft was the winner of the Concours d'Elegance and Best Tube and Fabric awards at the SAAA's 2008 'Escape to Cowra' fly-in. It's seen here getting airborne in the capable hands of owner-builder Rainer Huefner for a display at the Houdini-Centenary Air Show. As Rainer was careful to point out to me, this aircraft is not a One Design as it departs in some respects from the strict requirements for that classification.
