The prototype, G31 ba, c/n 3000, flew in early September 1926. The original Junkers L5 engines proved to be
underpowered and the central engine was replaced by a BMW V1. The open cockpit for the crew was a feature of
the aircraft. This machine, along with the last three constructed, went to New Guinea where it was initially operated
by Bulolo Gold Dredging & CO and then by Guinea Airways as VH-URQ.,Jun. 34 to Apr.42, named 'Pat',
