VH-BJL (1)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth            (c/n  DHA1064)


                                          A rather washed out, uncontrasty image gleaned from  the archives of Exxon Mobil by Wally
                                          Civitico.  VH-BJL was the former A17-733, and was civilianized in June 1949.  The name on
                                          the rudder is 'Jean', although I have no idea who owned it.  It didn't last long (at least as -BJL),
                                          for it was seriously damaged at Proserpine, Queensland (that's up among the sugar country) on
                                          3 November 1949.      It languished then for over thirty years, being finally restored in August
                                          of 1982 as VH-BJU(2).   It is still current and has remained based at Cecil Plains, Queensland
                                          ever since.   Dave Welch took the shot below of it as -BJU(2) at that remote locale in January
                                          of 2011.   Nice to see it as a "non-warbird'.
