VH-UVF  de Havilland D.H.85 Leopard Moth                         (c/n   7126)


                                  It's tough to tell a Leopard Moth from the earlier Puss Moth.   The wing planform is different,
                                  but a quick guide is the revised positioning of the undercarriage bracing struts.   This aircraft was
                                  imported in November 1936 for Colin H. Young of Cunnamulla, Qld.  The above shot, from the
                                  John Oxley Library, State Library of Queensland collection shows it at Cunnamulla in 1939. It
                                  survived the war, but was withdrawn from use at the end of 1947.  It came back on the register
                                  in 1950 and was withdrawn again in 1959.   No further data on its status.
