VH-FBT de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger
VH-FBT was one of those 'mystery' Tigers with the
dubious c/ns. Perhaps someday some
expert (certainly not me) can positively identify its true manufacturer
and hence its real msn.
Possibly a Tiger built of many parts. Anyway, both these photos
were submitted by Geoff
and were taken by Fred W.Bourke, a long-time crop dusting pilot who
Aerial Agriculture, Sydney on their Tigers in the VH-Pest Control
series, then set up his own
Wagga for many years. Both these shots were at Wagga.
-FBT was written
off in a crash
at that locale on 10 August 1963, but the caption on the image below
indicate whether this shot was of that very incident or not.. .
