                                      Not really the sort of picture I like to illustrate a given aircraft, but then........ VH-ATB was a
                                      Latrobe Valley Aerio Club machine when it struck a tree during a turn after takeoff from a strip
                                      at Bonnie Doon, Victoria  (near Eildon Weir) on 14 November 1956.  The above image was
                                      provided by John Willis an ex CFI of the Club, via Geoff Goodall.  The accident was described
                                      at the time as "very definitely pilot error".   The Tiger, a UK-built machine which served during
                                      WW II as N9260, was written off (although today would doubtless have been salvaged.
