Although of poor quality, photographs of the DC-3 as VH-CXL are very rare. The photo was taken between August 1943 and late March 1944 while the DC-3 was serving with 36 Squadron RAAF based at Townsville, Queensland. As the aeroplane is only on loan to the RAAF, it carries the USAAF star and bars. Note also the radio call-sign VH-CXL (with a hyphen) on the fin and rudder.
