VH-BEQ  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n DHA809)


                                    Here's VH- BEQ at Moorabbin in 1961, just after being purchased from the Royal Vic Aero Club
                                    by a Melbourne private owner.   It was the second Tiger to bear the rego VH-BEQ, (the first was
                                    c/n 83274 which went to New Zealand in 1951 as ZK-AUT).  This -BBT was VH-RVN whilst
                                    with the club and was still carrying the club's tail stripes when this photo, from the Geoff Goodall
                                    collection, was taken.      It was still wearing them when John Wheatley took the photo below,
                                    possibly early in 1970, as the machine was being boxed up for transportation to the USA where it
                                    became N14569.   It was current as such well into the new millennium, but is no longer registered
                                    (at least, under that rego).
