                                        A rare, albeit grainy shot of a Royal Aero Club of SA Tiger at Parafield in the late 1940s.  Photo
                                        from the SA Aviation Museum, via Geoff Goodall     Below, an equally poor shot from the Nigel
                                        Daw collection of the same aeroplane.      Ex A17-454, VH-BXI had originally been civilianized
                                        from RAAF disposals at Point Cook as VH-AXI in October 1946.      It was re-registered, per
                                        DCA dictate in September 1949 when the VH-AX series were declared 'prohibited registrations'.
                                        It was withdrawn from use in August 1951.
