VH-AMD  (2)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth         (c/n   DHA154)


                                    The first two -AMDs were Tiger Moths.  This, the second, was the former VH-BTW (and VH-BLK
                                    and A17-153 before that).   It had had a career as a cropduster with five different West Australian
                                    companies before being retired in 1963 by Bob Couper Co at Cunderdin. It was rebuilt at Cunderdin
                                    to standard two seater configuration and sold to a private owner at Grass Valley WA. In 1969 it was
                                    purchased by Harvey Pearce of Victor Harbour, SA who was in the business of exporting Tiger Moths
                                    to the USA.  In May 1969 it was crated up and shipped from Port Adelaide, and by December of that
                                    year was flying again as N1244T registered to Stanley T. Reeves of Minnesota.  It now flies out of
                                    Pebble Beach, California as N82AZ   The above shot was taken at Rockingham WA, in  October
                                    1965 by Merv Prime (seen here via the Geoff Goodall collection).
