Australian Civil Aircraft:VH-Uxx series. This was the first Australian series, emanating from the U.K. G-AUxx series. All were allocated by the
end of1937. The VH- marking was adopted in 1930. Note: VH-U registrations allocated later (from
the 1980s on) will not appear in this section but will be under VH-M thru VH-Z.
VH-AAA - ALZ This series started just before WW II. Got to about VH-AEA by the time the War started. Proceeded
in sequence to VH-AZY (VH-AZZ not allotted) by 1947. Since then, many re-registrations have
occurred. See my note under VH-AAG.
VH-AMA - AZY As indicated above, VH-AZZ itself was never allotted. VH-AMA was assigned on 1 Feb 1946.
As registrations ran out in the 1970s and 1980s the same markings were re-allocated (sometimes
over and over again).
VH-Bxx Series The original series commenced in 1947 and went through to about 1949. Since then there have
been many re-allocations.
VH-C - VH-L From 1950 on, most Australian registrations were "out of sequence" i.e. did not follow on from VH-BZZ.
There were many re-allocations back in the VH-A and VH-B series, whilst most organizations had their own
series. Tossed in with this were the 'owner's initials' type registrations, plus some which defy (at least on
the surface) any logical explanation. However, after about 1960, with the flood of imports, sequential
allocations were once again more normal, starting around VH-CDA. Wih the help of enthusiasts who
started (more or less) where I left off in Australia, I am beginning to enlarge the collection with images
from their collections. Probably the most prolific photographers of this 1965-1970 era are Geoff Goodall,
Greg Banfield, Ian McDonell, John Wheatley and Martyn Covey, to whom I am greatly indebted.
VH-M thru VH-Z Orignally began with more 1950s out of sequence allocations, such as Mandated Airlines, Royal Vic
Aero Club, Superspread and Trans Australia Airlines. Latterly, more in-sequence registrations fall
within this group and I am beginning to put these up, as discussed in the previous paragraph.
