VH-AMY  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                  (c/n  83116)


                                       This was the second VH-AMY and was formerly VH-BLZ.  The first was also a Tiger, a DHA
                                       built one (DHA211. ex A17-210), which was written on in a crash at Pearce, WA in 1955. The
                                       above Hatfield built machine also served its time with the RAAF although retained its RAF serial
                                       of  R5257.    Geoff Goodall's shot was taken on owner Les Kordys' farm at Trayning, WA in
                                       December 1969.  That's Les in the cockpit taxying out for a flight from his farm airstrip. The
                                       flat wheatlands beyond are just as featureless as those in Alberta!   VH-AMY was previously yet
                                       another ag Tiger in the large fleet of Bob Couper Co at Cunderdin WA before conversion back
                                       to two cockpit configuration for resale.  Les held on to this old bird until the spring of 2006 when
                                       it was sold to an owner in NSW, where it is currently registered.
