VH-ASC (2) de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                     c/n  134/T215


                                  This was the former Royal Victorian Aero Club's VH-RVI the first, which was sold off to
                                  Airspread Australia in 1956.  It crashed at Buchan, Victoria the next year.     The above
                                  photograph  is from the Barrie Colledge collection and was taken at Moorabbin.      The
                                  photo below was taken by Joe Salfass (from The Collection.p1234-2378) and shows the
                                  remains in the field near Buchan in January 1957.       This was actually the second Tiger
                                  to carry this rego, the first being c/n DHA441, ex A17-397 which was damaged beyond
                                  repair at Essendon in 1947 ('twould've been rebuilt in this day and age, but in 1947 Tigers
                                  were two a penny).
