Using Avro 504 parts, the 547 was a five-seater with an extra set of wings to lift the heavier load. Proved unsuitable for Australian conditions and ended up as a chicken coop in Sydney. May never have been used on Qantas services. A second more powerful 547 for the UK Air Ministry was deemed too slow and too unstable and was quickly scrapped. Photo from: State Library of Queensland
VH-UMO was registered in 1929 as a Moth Coupe with a Gipsy I engine. Whether it did have an enclosed cockpit when it arrived in Australia is not known but by 1946 did have open cockpits. In this 1964 photo it has an "inverted" Gipsy III engine as fitted to Tiger Moths. -UMO crashed in September 1965 and was removed from the register. It returned in 1993 but with no recent photos, it may be a project and not an active aircraft. Its engine is listed as a Gipsy II, which is not inverted.

Later rebuilt as a standard two-seat Chipmunk T.10. The Sasin conversion was done in 1965-67 and -BCA was operated initially as a cropduster. Later used as a glider tug before being withdrawn from use at Mareeba in 1977. It returned to the register in 1986 under the original designation Chipmunk T.10 and with a fresh coat of paint. Flown in RAF makings since becoming a two-seater again.
