I have some other pix which I'll scan, of some people and aircraft. Some of you oldies might be able to ID them for me!
In the picture of the group of people standing by the biplane my father is on the far left of the photo... it looks like some promo for Shell Oil. (check out the can!)
I do have many more, however I'll have to scan them. And I can only upload 5 at a time to the blog.
I do know that Dad helped Fred and Grace Hoinville on occasion with his flying (after his death Grace sent a letter to Mum saying that Fred had always appreciated Dad's assistance and that he couldn't have completed his trips without that assistance - I don't know if she still has the letter, she had a big clean up a few years ago). I know he was a member of a gliding club, and he also built gliders - I have some photos of that, too.
Just googled this picture of Fred Hoinville (scroll down), and I'm wondering if it's him on the far right in the group photo? Here's some more information on Fred Hoinville. I think it might be him... Hey, Minicapt, do you think the Tiger Moth is Fred's Brolga?
Update : This is great! I wonder what other treasures there are among Dad's photographs?
More information, this time on Southern Cross Gliding Club.
Update 2: Minicapt has been searching for me and found this link to VH-AYY Hoinville's "Brolga".
