In the historical Essendon photo it is VH-UMH the tri-engine aircraft. The aircraft top left is VH-ULB and to the right is VH-UGY a Travelair 2000. So do we think it is 1932?

Possibly 1930/31 as ANA operated during this period.

The crowd around VH-UMH might have been greeting or farewellling the passengers. There are photos elsewhere on the web showing passengers boarding at Essendon with a reasonable crowd of onlookers.

Click on history then click airports icon. RHS. Find Essendon the click on 1930 link. It shows VH-UMI with a smaller crowd.

I noticed the photo from CR NO is in the State Library of Victoria . Maybe ask Sir Raymond W Garrett when he took the pic :-)

If only I remembered to ask in 1994! Sir Garrett lived to a fair old age.

Probably not the prettiest aircraft in the catalogue, but I love these AT's.

The prop still turns whilst we reload; the photographer was too darn busy to change the shutter speed.....

Oldies at Echuca last weekend

140 aircraft were there! Here's a few:

















Also I managed to put a name/face to "Fantome" - we flew together 49 years ago (gulp).

Enjoy!

An Aero 45, Czech 1950's aeroplane powered by Walter Mikrons, looks as though the props have been changed from the originals though, PH (I used to work for the Omnipol importers back in the 60's).

The Aero Ae-45 resp. Ae-145 is a twin-engined four-seat light touring and corporate travel aircraft with retractable landing gear produced by the Czechoslovak manufacturer AERO Vodochody a.s.. A further variant of the Ae-45 was the Ae-45S Super-Aero.

Remarks
The Aero Ae-45 was the first aircraft developed by AERO after WWII. The versions Ae-45S and Ae-145 were produced by Let Kunovice. The Ae-45S was also license-built in the Peoples Republic of China.

Perfect for flying in australia. Service ceiling 4430ft. That means only 3 'mountains' to avoid.
Handy range. 1600km. Throttle back to fuel saving 200km/h, that's 8 hours endurance.

Hope there a 'water closet' on board. At least a bucket. Or a bottle...

TTY is correct - it's a Super Aero 145.

Maybe the 4400 ft quoted earlier is the single engined ceiling?

The owner states that it will, if cleaned up, climb away on one. Now we're talking of 3500 lbs being dragged along by 140 hp, so this is quite a claim.

Certainly a neat aeroplane, and a beautiful restoration.

Felt sorry for those on the road that didn't have an aircraft to get to their Easter destination...

The above thread gives you chapter and verse, however the short version is that you need to host your photos elsewhere and insert the link in your post here. I use a free photobucket account, the trick is to copy the "Direct" link, ie not the IMG etc links, this then gets pasted in the address bar when you click on the little yellow "postcard" insert image icon on the toolbar above. 4th from right on my version. Simple when you know how, but I'll admit to a feww curses until I worked it out.
