VH-UTD  (2)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                  (c/n  DHA341/T308)


                                   This beautiful Tiger appears to have been built (in the Luskintyre "factory") from the remains of
                                   VH-AYX.   This latter machine was withdrawn from service on 2 December 1965 after being
                                   retired at Alice Springs, its last owner at that time being Territory Rice Ltd of Darwin NT.  The
                                   DCA register quoted its RAAF identity as A17-322 and it was assigned DHA overhaul number
                                   T.308 when issued to DHA in November 1944 for complete overhaul.  VH-UTD was registered
                                   on 15 December 1995 to Ray Windred who had the Tiger Moth rebuild production line at Lusk-
                                   intyre NSW, quoting its id.as "341".    Ian McDonell's nice shot above was taken at Luskintyre
                                   in June 2009.
