VH-ALC  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth            (c/n  83260/T289)


                                   VH-ALC was one of those Hatfield-built Tigers which was never issued an A17- serial.    It spent
                                   its service years in Australia as N9259, and was not civilianized until 1951.  Bob Neat's color slide
                                   (above, via the Geoff Goodall collection) was taken at Condobolin, NSW in April 1964.  The nice
                                   color shot  below from Greg Banfield was at at air show at Point Cook in December 1973.  At the
                                   foot of the page is an evocative 'bush' shot of it from Ashley Waugh taken in the early 1960s when
                                   the Tiger was owned by his maternal grandfather Keith Butler and his brother Ken who operated
                                   from their 'Glengariff' property at Grenfell, NSW.   In 1993 -ALC was was exported to Germany
                                   as D-EAJO.  It later went to the UK as G-BXBO but had its CofA cancelled by the CAA in 1999. 
                                   Is it languishing somewhere in the UK?
