(1) de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
I suspect that this was a "staged" event, rather
than a near collision with a Tiger and a 1947 locally
produced Chevvy. In the event. it does look as
the pilot cut it a little fine!
VH-BAE was civilianized in November 1946 being ex
A17-290. It was re-registered VH-BBU
(the second) in December of 1959,
then again in 1961 as VH-KGS.
(The VH-BBU I list in
this collection is
first, and not the same Tiger as the above machine).

McDonald. This latter photo was taken at Lis-
more, NSW, circa
