VH-UVK set out for Australia as G-ABGK, Race No. 16, in the 1934 Mildenhall-Melbourne air race. Its race was over when its undercarriage collapsed on landing at Aleppo in Syria. The damaged aircraft was salvaged and shipped to Australia where it was repaired by Horrie Miller, of MacRobertson Miller Airlines fame. He operated -UVK until November 1941 when the RAAF impressed it as A42-1. The Vega survived the war but was scrapped at the orders of the Department of Civil Aviation.
