Royal Victorian Aero Club  - Aircraft of the 1950s and 60s

The Club re-allocated the same registration to many of its Tigers.  i.e. one would be pranged or sold and, within months
another would appear with the same rego as the departed one.    There is no way, externally, that differences can be
observed, one from the other, and hence you will have to believe me when I quote them as being the first or second.           
There is also a great deal of confusion regarding c/ns and previous identities.  I have just been contacted (May, 2005)
by Barrie Colledge who has provided invaluable historic data regarding the lineage of many of these machines.   Many
thanks, Barrie. 
All the images were taken at Moorabbin from 1954 to 1958. 
I decided to group them all on a page similar to the treatment of airline stock, as, after all, see one Tiger, see 'em all........
