VH-BKB  (2)   de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                  (c/n  DHA434)

                                     This is the second VH-BKB.  The first, also a Tiger, was cancelled from the register in 1951
                                     and re-born as VH-BTS.   This one was ex A17-392 and civilianized in 1946 as VH-ATL
                                     before becoming VH-BKB in 1958.   It is seen above at Moorabbin in 1960 in this photo by
                                     Bob Dougherty (via the John Hopton collection) wearing Victorian Aerial Farming Aids titling.
                                     Geoff Goodall's hangar shot (below) was taken at Ballarat in 1967.  This Tiger was eventually
                                     exported to the US where it was registered N5446.  It is still (2009) current and is seen in
                                     a shot at the foot of the page taken by Greg Putz (via Jerry Vernon) whilst the aircraft was re-
                                     fueling at Regina, Saskatchewan  in July 2009.   (Considering the Tiger is registered in Georgia,
                                     that's quite an Odyssey!)..  The FAA gives its c/n as A17-392, incidentally.
