VH-BIX (1)    de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                        (c/n  DHA.934)


                                     A slightly washed-out, but very rare photograph of a Royal Victorian Aero Club Tiger
                                     at Essendon in November of 1948. When the club moved to the new airport at Moorabbin in
                                     1949, this machine moved with them, but was unfortunately written off some eighteen months
                                     later in a crash at Edithvale, Victoria (on 1 July 1951).    This photograph was taken by Daryl
                                     Mackenzie, a RVAC instructor at the time, and comes from the Barrie Colledge collection.
