VH-BNW  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                     (c/n  DHA205)


                                    VH-BNW had just been civilianized when this shot (from the Geoff Goodall collection) was taken
                                    at Maylands some time in 1949.  It was previously A17-204, and the new owner was Douglas Craig,
                                    of "Yalbalgo" Station, Carnarvon WA.    Craig owned several other aircraft including a Dragon, and
                                    sold this Tiger in 1952 to Aero Service Pty Ltd at Maylands who immediately converted it to a crop-
                                    sprayer.   It is seen below as such, also at Maylands, in January 1953  in a photo by John M. Smith
                                    (also via Geoff).  In November 1959 Aero Service reregistered it into the VH-WF "Westfarmers"
                                    registration block as VH-WFU
