VH-AXL was fitted with two small porthole windows either side of the cabin when delivered to QEA. It had been an ambulance aircraft with the RAAF and was sold to the Flying Doctor Service. AXL was operated by Connellan Airways with these portholes but it is not known if they were installed by the RAAF or by Connellan postwar. Qantas refitted the standard DH84 glasshouse and sent the aircraft to Papua New Guinea. It crashed there at Karanka on September 21, 1951. Note the Qantas hangar still has its wartime camouflage.
