Photo Comment

VH-AJO was assembled at Rose Bay flying boat base by Qantas. This photo looks like it has made the short hop to the Qantas base at Sydney airport. It and sister ship VH-AJN were used in Papua New Guinea to support oil exploration. VH-AJO sank at its mooring at Port Moresby on January 21, 1952.
