VH-APE  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                        (c/n  DHA219)


                                    From Charlie Morris (owner of Genairco VH-UOD in the background) comes this nice in flight
                                    shot of VH-APE (taken from a Chipmunk) in August of 2006.   This is not the original VH-APE
                                    which was actually c/n DHA39, ex A17-42 and was written off in Goulburn in 1947.  The above
                                    machine was ex A17-218.   It was civilianized in 1947 as VH-BCS, and withdrawn from use in
                                   1963.  Upon restoration it may have held other identities before becoming VH-APE in 1987.
                                    It was present at Bundaberg in August of 2007 where Phil Vabre took the shot below.
