VH-DAN  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n  DHA167)


                                   This was the former VH-BFB, ex A17-166, first civilianized in July 1949. It was re-registered
                                   VH-DAN a decade later (in August 1959).   It is seen above in this photo from the Geoff Goodall
                                   collection at Maylands, Perth in August 1960:     It was one of three Tigers exchanged with Eddie
                                   Connellan at Alice Springs in return for the Short Scion VH-UTV, held by Doggett Aviation &
                                   Engineering Co of Maylands.    Doggett added these three Tigers to their growing WA based
                                   agricultural  fleet and all had their standard livery scheme of yellow fuselage, red cowlings and
                                   silver wings with agricultural chemical company "Elders" name on the fuselage decking, and last                                    
                                   letter of the registration on the cowling.     The fabric covering of the rear fuselage was removed
                                   to simplify maintenance (although this appears not to have been done when this shot was taken).
                                   After surviving numerous accidents, -DAN was sold to a private owner at Bunbury SA and re-
                                   registered VH-CKE in September 1964.
