VH-AKQ  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                (c/n  DHA120)


                               Another of the Royal Aero Club of NSW's Tigers with the (almost invisible) rego in black on
                               a dark backgound.  (See my narrative on VH-AGK for a discussion on the color scheme of
                               these Tigers).   The above shot wasd taken at Bankstown in April 1954.  VH-AKQ was re-
                               registered VH-AYY in 1958, VH-BYF in 1960, spent some time in 1961 as the Royal Vic's
                               VH-RVC, and finally wound up as (the second)  VH-ACJ.   Mercifully, for the bloke assigning
                               regos at DCA it was damaged beyond repair at Urunquinty, NSW in December 1964 and with-
                               drawn from the register.    It was formerly A17-123 with the RAAF.
