The First Successful Aeroplane Built in Western Australia

Model of "The Kalgoorlie Biplane"

The history of the Kalgoorlie Biplane is being researched. One of the responses to a request for information on the biplane published in Jenny Kohlen's Can You Help? column (January 26, 2009) led to this model which is on sale in the Curio Warehouse in James Street, Guildford. At this stage the sculptor is unknown.
