Adastra's Hangar 8 in 1940. Tiger Moth VH-UVZ was registered to Airflite Ltd. on 12 August 1936. The aircraft crashed into Sydney Harbour on 21 April 1937 but was rebuilt and returned to service with Airflite in February 1938. In August 1940 the aircraft was impressed by the RAAF as A17-691. It survived the war and carried several civil registrations before reverting to VH-UVZ. The aircraft is now in the collection of the Temora Aviation Museum. The photo was taken by Ruth Dunstan (nee Palmer) a nurse who started taking flying lessons at Archerfield in 1938 with a view to becoming a flying nurse. Sadly, late in 1938 she was told that flying lessons were available only to men and her dream never eventuated.
