VH-UXC  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth  (c/n 3515)

                                  VH-UXC was an Australian built Tiger Moth and is seen here new outside the de Havilland of Australia
                                  plant in NSW just prior to its delivery to the Whyalla Aero Club in South Australia.   This machine was
                                  impressed into the RAAF during the war as A17-22. Upon its release from military duties in 1946 it
                                  became part of the Royal Queensland Aero Club fleet.  The image below shows the aircraft with RQAC
                                  stripes on the rudder.  Unfortunately, after only six months with that club it was destroyed by fire in a
                                  crash at Maryborough, Queensland.
