G-AAAH Jason aka de Havilland DH.60G Gipsy Moth








De Havilland Gipsy moth Aeroplane 'Jason I', by De Havilland Aircraft Company, Brent, Greater London, United Kingdom, 1928. Used on historic flight of Miss Amy Johnson to Australia, May 1930, DH.60G, G-AAAH

In 1930, English aviator Amy Johnson (1903-1941) piloted Jason I to become the first woman to fly solo from Great Britain to Australia, flying from Croydon in Greater London, to Darwin in the Northern Territory. The Gipsy Moth contributed to the growth of private and sport flying between the two world wars, and was used for many great aviation feats. About 1000 were built by the de Havilland company at Edgware, Greater London.

I'm confused by at least one and possibly two of those critters.


The two at the top - the yellowish one is a koala and the gray one is a wombat?


On the bottom we got a platypus on the one side, I suppose that's a kangaroo in the middle although I reckon it could be a wallaby. But what's that on the other side? Appears feminine, or at least it looks to have a bow on the top of its head. The facial features appear quite rat-like.


Is there a jolly Aussie animal that's a rat?

They are pretty p#ss poor representations of Aussie animals that's for damn sure.


From left and this is a WAG a Bandicoot, then a Koala, then a Kangaroo, then a weird coloured Koala and finally a Platypus.


This may help.

Okie dokie. The grey one is Blinky Bill, and he is a koala. The brown one is his girlfriend Nutsy, and she is also a koala. No misogynation here. The kangaroo is Splodge.


Little information seems to be available, because Blinky Bill never left Australia. Been around since the 30s, but apparently he did not have the price of a boat ticket.

Were these a thing in the US? I can remember in the '70's when every kid in Oz was using a Ding Bat 



Paddle ball here.

But can they hop backwards?


And on another thought, do kangaroos even walk? Or just hop slowly?:huh:


I've never seen one hop backwards, sideways yes.


They don't walk but they move along slowly when they're grazing but always both hind legs move together with the tail and the front legs as the anchor points.

In Texas:

I'll park on the edge of the parking lot to park in shade, and then walk clear across the lot, so that my Jeep Patriot seat doesn't burn my butt when I return. Plus, I'll open the hatch to let the hot air out, so that the air doesn't incinerate my lungs.

Besides, it's not fair to my Pat.

She has a shaded driveway at home, and doesn't like parking in the sun.  It's bad for her complexion, uh, finish!


Side Note:

A neighbor lady baked a loaf of bread in her brick-covered mailbox this past week. Kinda like in Oz!
