This page has undergone a major update. The most significant change is that ALL Previous Identities are now listed in chronological order from the top. The most recent identity is that which appears in the column headed Regn.

Identities commencing "VH" but without a hyphen are radio call-signs which were carried concurrently with an RAAF A30 serial (CRE & CRK) or a USAAF serial (CXH). These radio call-signs were painted on the fin/rudder of the aircraft.

NOTES

1
The aircraft was, until recently, displayed on poles at Albury Airport marked as PH-AJU "Uiver" to commemorate Albury's part in assisting the original "Uiver" to reach Melbourne during the 1934 Centenary Air Race. The aeroplane has been brought down from its poles for refurbishment and it is hoped to erect a building to house it. Subsequently it was determined that the aeroplane was too badly deteriorated and it was advertised for sale worldwide. After a lengthy and probably expensive process of surveying the aircraft and evaluating potential purchasers, the Council changed its mind and will now attempt to restore and house the aircraft in Albury.
2
The aircraft was trucked to Tyabb on 05AUG91. It was subsequently damaged in a storm.
In early 2005 the aeroplane was donated to the Moorabbin Air Museum.
3
The aircraft was previously PK-AFL with KNILM, VHCXH with the Allied Directorate of Air Transport, 41-1376 with the USAAF, VH-ADZ with Australian National Airways and VH-CDZ with Marshall Airways.
