VH-BGP  (2)   de Havilland D.H.89B Dragon Rapide    (c/n  6648)

                                         Lovely shot above by Geoff Goodall taken at the 1975 Berwick, Victoria Air Show. This aircraft
                                         had just been imported from New Zealand when it had been registered  ZK-BCP.   It later became
                                         part of the ill-fated Wangaratta Airworld Museum where Ken Tilley took the shot immediately below
                                         in the mid 1980s.   VH-BGP is now owned by Bruce Ivers who is having it lovingly restored (as a
                                         long term project) at Croydon Aircraft Co at Mandeville, near Gore on New Zealand's South Island.
                                         Despite its rather pristine look in the museum shot, recent closer inspection showed it to have wood-
                                         work and bonding problems requiring expert renovation if it is to be used to fly sightseeing tours over
                                         the Perth area, which is Bruce's ultimate goal.
