havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
This is one of those Tigers whose
identity appears to be shrouded in mystery. Its c/n is usually
given as '853". However,
the true DHA853 was the RQAC's VH-AZT and clearly they are not
the same aeroplane.
This one first appeared on the register in 1953 as VH-AGB. It
VH-DDV in 1955 and was
re-registered again in 1958 as VH-AWK. Brian Baker saw it (above)
at Archerfield, Brisbane in December 1961. In 1962 it
became VH-PUW, but I am not sure of
its fate after that.
