VH-UTD  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth         (c/n 3320)

                                     This Tiger was sold new to the Newcastle Aero Club at Broadmeadow, NSW in June 1935, and
                                     named 'Halcyon'.   It is seen above at an air pageant at Mascot, probably in the late 1930s, in this
                                     image from the State Library of New South Wales collection.    My own shot (below) is a take-off
                                     of the official CofA photograph taken at DHA before sale.   VH-UTD was impressed into RAAF
                                     service in 1940 as A17-675.   It failed to re-emerge after the war.  Probably written off by some
                                     cadet pilot.
