VH-AYG  (1)   de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n   DHA 635)


                                     Rare shot from the Geoff Goodall collection showing the first VH-AYG registered in October
                                     1946.  Clearly the first, since the Anson VH-AVZ in the background was written off when the
                                     brakes failed during a landing at Port Moresby on 22 November 1946 on arrival from Higgins
                                     Field, Cape York, whereupon it ran off the steel mesh runway, rolled into a ditch, and badly
                                    damaging the port wing.   -AYG for its own part was ex A17-440 and was sold in New Zealand
                                     in 1950 as ZK-AWB.
