Quite simple really.  I've stumbled across an old photo of my grandfather which was taken around 1932 (give or take a couple of years) and was just wondering whether anyone had any idea of who was in the area flying their plane at the time.  Photo was taken in Adelaide.

That old girl would (probably)be Horrie Miller's de Havilland DH9 biplane

Took a few steps to work out what kind of plane it was then search for Adelaide. I never saw the pic you added I found one from 1927 from the other side which was taken at Mt Gambier but he travelled to Parafield Airport as well at the time.
