VH-AFM (2)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                       (c/n  DHA447/T219)


VH-AFM was with the Casino Aero Club when the above shot, from the Alan J. Sheppard
                                        collection was taken, circa May 1947.     Alan's father logged hours in it.   Roger McDonald
                                        supplied the image below which was taken from a
Xeroxed copy of an old Box Brownie snap-
                                        shot.   Roger captured it from an old album lent to him sometime ago - long before the advent
                                        of scanners.  Looks like the Tiger was in some sort of rally or race.  This was actually the second
                                        allocation of the registration VH-AFM the first being given to a Consolidated 28-5MA Catalina
                                        when delivered by Qantas in 1941, before going to the RAAF as A24-12.  This VH-AFM was
                                        the former A17-403 and was written off when it crashed at Tamworth, NSW on 29 June 1948.
