Narrative:
To DH India with C of A 2674 issued 25.7.30. Registered VT-ABJ 1.31 to unknown party. Registered [C of R 122] 3.11.31 to Bhaba Deb Mukerjee, Barranagar (based Dum Dum, Calcutta).

Badly damaged in crash on landing Lucknow 20.2.32 during Viceroy's Cup Race; also reported as crashed after striking turning pylon at Cawnpore. Mukerjee suffered broken ankle.

Registration cancelled as "unserviceable" 30.9.34. Note VT-ADU was registered 14.1.33 to De Havilland Aircraft Co Ltd with c/n 2032; it is thus possible that VT-ADU was a rebuild incorporating the fuselage of c/n 2032, since VT-ADU was subsequently referred to as c/n 2099R, a rebuild of VT-ACF.
