VH-AZS (1)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n  DHA631/T173)


                                     This shot is an enlargement from a photo from the Geoff Goodall collection of a line up of Royal Aero
                                     Club of NSW aircraft taken at Mascot in 1948.  VH-AZS had been civilianized in January 1947, and
                                     was ex A17-438.   It had several periods of being withdrawn from the use in 1951 and 1955 and was
                                     finally restored after one of these periods as VH-PCH. (PC for pest control) for Air-Griculture Control.
                                     I am guessing that at that point in time it lost its canopy and was converted to a single seater with a hopper
                                     in the front cockpit.
