ZK-AEJ   de Havilland D.H.60M  Moth            (c/n   1542)


                                    Here's a Moth in a rural setting at Tauranga, circa 1949.     This ancient bird is the oldest
                                    aircraft still flying in New Zealand.    Built in the UK in 1930 as G-AAXG (primarily for racing)
                                    it was flown to second place in the1930 Kings Cup Race by Arthur Butler.  It was then swapped
                                    to the French Aviator Eduard Bret in 1931 for his Bugatti automobile, becoming F-AJZB.  In
                                   1935 it was exported to New Zealand.  After some time in storage in the 1960-80s it was rebuilt
                                   and is now based in Southland.
