VH-AUK  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n  DHA583)


                                   The two images on this page are both by Geoff Goodall.  It was a crop duster the shot when the shot
                                   above was taken at Albury, NSW in 1965.    When he saw it again at Wodonga, Victoria (Below) in
                                   1973, it appears to have been converted to a single seat aerobatic machine.  It crashed at Melton, Vic
                                   not long after this photograph was taken (in February 1974).   There appears to be an identity problem
                                   associated with VH-AUK.  One source states that it was c/n 3632 and hence the former VH-UZT,
                                   impressed into service as A17-677, and registered VH-AUK in 1958. Another source claims it to be
                                   c/n DHA583, ex-RAAF A17-408 first registered in 1947.  When I personally pulled the details from
                                   the old VH- Civil Register ledger pages in 1953, DCA (as it was then) reported the c/n for -AUK as
                                   A17-408.  That doesn't necessarily make it correct, but it probably was the latter.
