VH-UVB de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
As VH-ARW this
aircraft had crashed at Cairns in
October 1957 and then languished for thirty-odd
before finally re-emerging in 1990 as VH-UVB. Phil Vabre's
contemporay shot of it (above)
was taken at
Tooradin, Victoria in August 2008. Barry Hempel owned it at
Archerfield in the 1990s
as seen in the
two lower images from the Grame Higgs collection. The
Australian civil register lists
as c/n 1136 although just where that came from I am not sure.
This Tiger was formerly
A17-94 in the RAAF.
