VH-UZR  Genairco                                                            (c/n  11)


                                     VH-UZR began life as VH-UNT built in the Genairco hangar at Mascot in April 1930 and fitted
                                     with a Cirrus Hermes.    It was bought new by airline pioneer Keith Virtue and the following year
                                     registered to his New England Airways at Lismore NSW.   Various crashes and new owners
                                     followed until it was re-registered VH-UZR in October 1939 to a Mr. F.E.Biffen of Casino NSW
                                     after a lenghty rebuild from a previous crash.    However it did not last long, crashing again on
                                     5 April 1940 at Archerfield.   The wreck was sold but not rebuilt, probably due to the war situation,
                                     and was struck off the register in 1941.    Photo below from the Geoff Goodall collection.
