VH-TGR (2) de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger
Since the first -TGR (a TAA Twin
Otter) was written off years ago, this onomatopoeic rego
was snapped up when this Tiger was restored in 1992. A
Hatfield-built machine, delivered
to the RAAF with UK serial T5560,
it was originally civilly registered in 1947 as VH-BJT
. It was written off in a crash at Moora, WA in 1954, and
languished somewhere for four
reemerging pristine as -TGR. Since October 2010 it
has been owned by an
Mr. John Walker, and based in Victoria's Latrobe Valley.
