VH-AMU  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n  DHA397)


                                        This was the second Tiger to bear the rego VH-AMU.  The first, (c/n DHA230), was wfu
                                        in October 1947.  This one (ex RAAF A17-362) came on the register at the end of 1947 as
                                        VH-BKC.  It was withdrawn from use in 1951 and resurrected sometime later as VH-WFY.
                                        It was re-registered VH-AMU in October 1960 and was originally one of Bob Couper's
                                        agricultural Tigers.  Note non-standard curved rear cockpit treatment.  Geoff Goodall's shot
                                        above was taken at Beverley, WA in November 1970.  One month later it was to crash on a
                                        farm at North Baandee, WA (13 December 1970), luckily with no loss of life.  However, the
                                        aircraft was written off with only the rear fuselage and tailplane undamaged.
