Photographer's Remark

G-AABY was a contestant in the 1934 Mildenhall-Melbourne air race but so many misfortunes befell it it was listed as a "failed to finish". It did arrive a month after the race was ended and found a buyer in Queensland. The photo is believed to show it in Queensland, likely at Archerfield, ahead of being registered VH-UTT to a Toowoomba owner. Soon after it was sold in Papua New Guinea but by August 1937 it was no longer in use. Photo from: State Library of Queensland
