Two of Adastra's founders, Miss Evelyn Follett (centre) and her brother, Captain Frank Follett (right) pose with an unknown engineer and an Aero Club of New South Wales Airco DH-9, probably at Mascot. The aircraft is almost certainly VH-UMT which was registered to the Australian Aero Club (NSW Section) on 7 October 1929. By August 1930, the registered owner was the Aero Club of NSW. The aircraft was struck off the register on 17 May 1931. Note that the Aero Club of NSW emblem on the aeroplane incorporates a rudimentary winged kangaroo. The foregoing dates the photo at circa 1930-31.
