VH-AJA de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth   (c/n  629/T192)


                                     If this Tiger had been built with the coupe canopy it would, theoretically, have been a D.H.82C.
                                     However, the cover had been fitted some time prior to my taking this shot of it at Moorabbin in
                                     1955.      Greg Banfield caught it (below) at Bankstown in August 1966 looking very smart with
                                     "That Magnificent Flying Machine" titling.     At about the same time Geoff Goodall ran across it
                                     (#3 below) sitting in a farmer's paddock near Barham, NSW.    I see he drove his  Ford Zephyr
                                     up a dirt road to take the shot.  John Wheatley's color slide (foot of the page) was  taken around\
                                     1971.    This Tiger (ex RAAF A17-437) is still flying, albeit sans canopy nowadays.
