The pilot was being helped by an Aramco DC4 which was getting low on fuel. We found the Aero 45 after about one hour searching (with landing lights) and escorted him to Bahrain, where he burst a main tyre on landing. While we were airborne the other Aero 45 had landed at Bahrain and we eventually all ended up in the RAF Officers mess having a few beers! I remember the brothers owned a garage in Sydney and were venturing into aircraft sales with the two Aero 45s as their first venture. Their manuals must be in Oz somewhere.
Delighted to hear this story. Recently we acquired the last surviving Aero 145 VH-DUH from Australia and flew her back to Czech similar routing like in 1961 when deliverd by Keith and Peter Virtue to Australia. Richard RAF Station Czechoslovakia

The Aero 45 we escorted to Bahrain was VH-DUB on July 5th 1960.
