Few photos exist of the only piston-engine Porter to grace the Australia register. It was based in Papua New Guinea and became P2-UIE when that country adopted its own register in May 1984. It was used in support of the Catholic Divine Word Mission missionaries.

Brisbane Flying School was established by Qantas in 1927. VH-UIC arrived on the register as G-AUIC in January 1929 but by the end of the year it had adopted the VH- prefix. It arrived in Brisbane in 1938 after a string if NSW-based owners. Crashed in 1939 and shipped south to Sydney for repairs. Soon after returning to the air, -UIC was impressed by the RAAF as A7-115. Became an instructional airframe. Photo from: State Library of Queensland
