Response to Australian Geese

 

according to an article in the Dutch IPMS magazine "MODELBOUW in PLASTIC" nr 3 of 1993
the dutch bought a goose from the Papua Oil Development Compagny in june 1939 and registered it as PK-AFS ( ex VH-AAJ) but the pictures shown (two) are of VH-AAY. This would be of a plane with dark fuselage colour ( blue or black) white registration and a silver tail ? and engines maybe ditto wings. The pictures are not that clear and the article discusses grumman G-21A used in Borneo and the Dutch Indies.

the book Grumman Goose by Steve Ginter shows one picture of VH-AAY and mentions VH-AAZ and also ? PK-AKA and PK-AKB but these are Dutch Indies registered Grummans.

I hope this helps a bit.

Xavier
