The interior of the main Department of Aircraft Production (Beaufort Division) Factory showing DAP Beaufort bombers during manufacture. The DAP factory was located next door to the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) at Fishermans Bend, Melbourne, and was rebranded as the Government Aircraft Factory (GAF) at the end of the war. The airframe A9-277, pictured, served with 32, 7 and 100 Squadrons, and was damaged beyond repair on 9 July 1944. A RAAF De Havilland Tiger Moth, serial number A17-143 is visible in the left foreground. This is a digitally combined composite panorama made up of four separate images and is only available for purchase as a digital print. The four images are also available separately at 139079, 139080, 139081 and 139082.
