1 Squadron undertook several cross-country formation flights. In December 1936 it was from its base at Laverton to Adelaide-Parafield and back via the old Mildura aerodrome. A year later they ventured all the way to Brisbane-Archerfield and this photo from the Queensland library would normally suggest these aircraft are at Archerfield. However A1-32, second in the line, had been destroyed in a fatal crash at Hamilton, Victoria, on August 31. A1-22 crashed at Point Cook on July 18, 1942. Photo from: State Library of Queensland

UHY changed hands a few times after that but under wartime restrictions is unlikely to have been flown. Struck off the register in 1946. The location is either New South Wales, where the aircraft was based in 1929, or Victoria. The scenery is typical of rural parts of both states. Photo from: State Library of Victoria

Like all 391 Oxfords received by the RAAF, V3354 was operated with its RAF serial. It became the subject of an official photo air-to-air photo shoot soon after arrival. By 1942, it and all other RAAF aircraft in the Pacific had the red centres of their roundels painted out to avoid confusion with Japanese aircraft. V3354 was destroyed by fire after landing at Point Cook on June 12, 1944. Photo from: National Library of Australia

Qantas was coerced into buying two 8-passenger Vickers Vulcans. Nicknamed the Flying Pig, it turned out it flew like one. G-EBET was assembled at Point Cook, Victoria, and flown to Longreach, Queensland, for Qantas to test. It failed dismally, unable to reach the promised altitude even when the payload was halved. Qantas cancelled its order. What happened to -EBET is not recorded. Where the photo was taken is unknown. Photo from: National Library of Australia
