VH-AMH  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n   DHA466)


                                        VH-AMH was one of the Australian-built order for the Dutch East Indies and was destined to
                                         have become PK-VVT.  In the event it was impressed into RAAF service as A17-624 follow-
                                         ing the Japanese invasion of the Dutch territory.   It was withdrawn from service in 1965 and
                                         restored as VH-TIG.   The two representative images of it here are both from the Geoff
                                         Goodall collection.    Above it is seen at West Sale, Victoria in August of 1967 just as it was
                                         ending its career as a crop duster.   The photo below, by Bob Neate, was taken somewhat
                                         earlier at Moorabbin in January 1961, whenit was still a standard two seater prior to having
                                         a hopper installed in the front seat to become an agricultural sprayer with Farm Air of Tinamba,
