This is the 2nd issue of the year for 2021 (our 36th year of publication). As usual I have to thank those people who have kindly allowed us to reproduce their articles and photos this issue, in particular the following - Andrew Wetzlich, Bruce Chapman, Alan Yee, Mick Mirkovic, Clarke Cone, Dave Muir, Gary Wickham, RAAF & the AHMWA. Don't forget that all photos credited to these individuals are subject to copyright and cannot be reproduced without their written permission. I also am grateful to Ley Reynolds for the review material.

For those who may have accessed the last issue previously, please note that the RAAF Ford Tri-motor article has been amended somewhat online to reflect additional info on A45-2 that was received after publication. You are recommended to access issue 35-1 again to get the latest updated article. Due to being busy for the last couple of months plus some computer problems, I did not have time to do the next instalments in the 76 Sqn and DC-3/C-47 article series. They should return next time.

Don't forget that all and any contributions to this publication are always welcomed, so send any material to the editorial address (P.O Box and email listed at the end of this page), or hand it to me at club meetings.
