ZK-AGM    de Havilland D.H.83 Fox Moth            (c/n   TS2810)


                                     This Fox Moth was originally owned by Air Travel (NZ) Ltd.  It then passed to New Zealand
                                     National Airways in 1947, who named it 'Matuhi'.  The dating of this shot places it in their
                                     ownership when the above photograph was taken in the early 1950s. It passed to Wanganui
                                     Aero Work in 1956 (who retained the name).  However, it was registered to a T.A. Gardenier
                                     when it was destroyed by fire in a crash at Freezing Flat (near Minaret Creek, West Wanaka)
                                     in 1963.  This aircraft had actually been built from parts of ZK-ADH  with a fuselage produced
                                     earlier by apprentices at the de Havilland Technical School (hence the non standard c/n).
