VH-BIY  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth          (c/n  DHA940)

                                           VH-BIY was purchased by the Royal Victorian Aero Club club from RAAF disposals
                                           (ex A17-517) in August 1947 and registered to them the following month.   It remained
                                           in club service until 27 April 1952 when it crashed after striking a tree near Geelong, Vic.
                                           The above shot is from the John Hopton collection whilst the truly horrible image below
                                           was gleaned from the Melbourne Argus for 12 January 1951 and was to remind folks that
                                           the following Sunday was 'People's Day' at Moorabbin.     I am just wondering if perhaps
                                           the above photo was taken at the same time?
