VH-UQB has the extra strut fitted to Australian Puss Moths. It was ordered in 1942 after several incidents of wings failing, notably costing the life of famous Australian aviator Bert Hinkler. No other country ordered the modification. -UQB resides at the National Museum of Flight in Scotland.
VH-DZY parked on Cessna agent Rex Aviation's flightline awaiting a buyer. It was withdrawn from use in 2005 by which time it had clocked up almost 17,000 hours. -DZY is now with the Queensland Air Museum, Caloundra, Queensland.
VH-CMI was originally VH-CMT with Thiess until it was reregistered in 1967 to make way for a new King Air 90. -CMI crashed near Alice Springs on January 20, 1982 when the starboard wing failed as a result of an uncontained engine fire.
VH-ASM had been withdrawn from use due to corrosion when this picture was taken. It was eventually subjected to an expensive rebuild from which it emerged in its original pre-war colours and registration (VH-UZO).
