Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth (c/n 804)
I have several
photographs of -ALW all taken in the Melbourne area in the mid
of them are especially
noteworthy........probably because the aircraft wasn't particularly
genic, wearing, as it did,
plain silver dope overall with a light blue registration.
This aircraft was
originally built for South Africa as DX747 but was
diverted to the RAAF whereupon it became
A17-654. It was written off
following a crash at Wollum Station, NSW in
1956. Around about
that time many Tigers were
converted to crop
dusters and I suspect that was the fate of this aircraft.
