VH-BIO (1)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                         (c/n  DHA858)


                                  This shot came from Bernadette Wood, whose father, Dr. Alan J. Wood was a flying doctor
                                  out of Cloncurry in the 1940s.  This shot was probably taken there. VH-BIO was the former
                                  A17-628, and civilianized in September 1947.     Little is known of its owners, except that it
                                  sustained damage at Cloncurry, Qld on 11 March 1952, which was extensive enough at that
                                  time to have it withdrawn from use.   Much later on, of course, it would have been restored.
                                  but in those days (my days, in fact), Tigers were extremely common and not worth putting a
                                  lot of money into.
