Despite appearances, this is not the orignal VH-UXY which was an Airspeed Envoy belonging to Charles Ulm and lost at sea near Hawaii in 1934. This aircraft is the more common 'B' model of the Hornet Moth with square wing-tips and was built in the UK in 1937. It was imported to Australia in 1979 and took up this 'period' registration.
