    The Australian Aircraft Restoration Group, operators of the Australian National Aviation Museum/ Moorabbin Air Museum have recently received donation of a rare 1934 Douglas DC-2.

    One of famed WW1 American ace Eddie Rickenbacker's "Great Silver Fleet" at Eastern Airlines, the DC-2 was purchased and operated by the RAAF as A30-9.
