    This is Judy Pays plane, actually a Warhawk, as JM says, sourced from Yankee land. It is located at her Museum at Tyabb, Victoria.

    As opposed to the late Col Pays Kittyhawk from the Scone NSW collection, painted and personally autographed by Bobby Gibbs in his original colours.

    The nearby University where my father worked as I was growing up had a DC-3 (civilian liner) and a C-47(military cargo). My dad flew lots of missions in the back of the C-47 developing an infrared thermal imaging system for the CIA. They eventually switch over to an Aero Commander for that duty because the C-47 was a fuel glutton. The DC-3 was lost to an accident. The pilot was a friend of ours and was the pilot who flew my dad in the C-47. He was the most conscientious and safety-conscious pilot I ever flew with. He was taking a cross-country flight in the DC-3 and stopped in a little airport for Avgas. After takeoff the plane made it up a couple of hundred feet and the engines conked out. It crashed into a forest killing all aboard.

    It turned out that the fuel distributor put a new kid on the fueling job. Rather than Avgas he pumped in jet fuel. Charlie, the pilot, did his fuel drain test into a cup but saw no jet fuel because it floated above the gas in the tank. Sad.
