G-AUJR  de Havilland D.H.66 Hercules               (c/n  347)


                                            Here's the fourth and last D.H.66 for West Australian Airways seen in two images (above)
                                            from the State Library of South Australia collection and (below) departing Maylands, Perth,
                                            circa 1929.    It had a short career with WAA, being sold to Imperial Airways to replace
                                            their DH.66 G-EBNA which crashed at Gaza on 14 February 1930.  As the Hercules was
                                            now out of production by D.H., Imperial Airways were anxious to acquire a second hand
                                            example from overseas.   -UJR was shipped from Perth to the Middle East and became
                                            Imperial Airways' G-ABCP 'City of Jodhpur'.     It was to be the last Hercules flying for
                                            Imperial Airways when it crashed into a swamp at Lake Salisbury, Uganda on 23 Nov 1935
                                            while taking off from Entebbe on the scheduled Entebbe-Juba run.
