ZK-ACO  de Havilland D.H.89A Dragon Rapide            (c/n 6259)


                                      This aircraft was entered in the 1934 MacRobertson England to New Zealand air race.
                                     After the race, a buyer could not be found in New Zealand and it was sold to WA Airways
                                     in Perth, Australia as VH-UUO.  This beautiful historic shot is from the James Dyson
                                     collection (via David Molesworth).  Another historic photo below, from the Janic Geelen
                                     collection, shows it en route in the race, thought to be at Cloncurry in November 1934.
