VH-RNI  (2)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth               (c/n  DHA108/T35)


                                   A17-111 was civilianized in July 1951 as VH-ALH.  It became VH-RNI upon joining the Royal
                                   Newcastle Aero Club in 1966, and is still owned by them.  Barry Maclean's shot above was taken
                                   at Richmond, NSW in October 1991, whilst that below is much earlier, and was shot by John
                                   Clark at the 1968 Aviation Expo at the RNAC, following the rebuild after its re-registration from
                                   VH-ALH.   Incidentally, this aircraft* can I believe, be chartered for a mere A$330.00 an hour.
                                   At the foot of the page is an interim time photo by Greg Banfield of -RNI at Maitland, NSW in
                                   October 1974.   Titling on the fuselage says "Royal Newcastle Aero Club"

                                   * John, who sent the shot immediately below, was instrumental in the early days of  Luskintyre
                                      Aviation, the Tiger Moth rebuild enterprise, and advises that -RNI crashed at Taree in 1970
                                      and the existing machine contains parts (evidently enough to retain the c/n) of the original
