VH-APT  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth     (c/n   180)


                                        Tiger Moths were rare visitors to Essendon.  After all, in the 1950s it was the International
                                        Airport for Melbourne and puddle jumpers were not exactly encouraged.  However, VH-APT
                                        snuck in one day, repleat with light blue and white checkerboard tail and parked next to DCA's
                                        hangar (almost under the wing of DC-3 VH-CAN).  The Tiger  underwent a restoration in 1962
                                        and became VH-ALP.   At some time either in the late 1990s or early 2000s it underwent
                                        another restoration and is currently flying as VH-VCR.
