Ordered by American Airlines but delivered to the USAAF, VH-ANH ended up in Australia with the Allied Directorate of Air Transport. The USAAF, RAAF and Guinea Airways flew it with the callsign VHCDJ. Guinea Airways bought it postwar but was soon transferred to ANA. When Ansett took over ANA -ANH was passed between the various airlines in the group until withdrawn from use in 1970. Now part of the Australian National Aviation Museum, Moorabbin. Photo from: Libraries Tasmania

Taken from the top of the Nut in Stanley. Repairs were being carried out to observation platforms and some paths and the helicopter was being used to lift 2 tonne hoppers of concrete to the work sites. The concrete was brought in to the base of the Nut by concrete mixer trucks and was then loaded into the hopper.

Abandoned at Allahabad, Pakistan, on December 26, 1946 while being ferried to the UK. Crew feared imminent failure of the tail. Between the time of the photo and being abandoned, VH-USW had served with the RAAF as an ambulance. It suffered a couple of significant accidents with Holyman's before the war. Postwar Qantas rejected -USW due to its poor condition and it went to MMA in Western Australia.
