ZK-BAB  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth          (c/n  83350)


                                               Another ":behind the woodshed" shot.  These working Tigers really did look bedraggled.
                                               My shot (above) shows it with Aerial SuperSpread of Gisborne in the mid-1950s.
                                               This one surprisingly, worked until 1985, and then was repatriated back to the U.K. and
                                               restored to its not only its former registration of G-ALRI, but also its former glory as an
                                               RAF trainer as Ken Tilley's nice shot below, taken at Woburn in August of 2005 illustrates.
                                               It is currently registered to Wessex Aviation & Transport Ltd (UK).  Note:  the once staid
                                               U.K. Registration Board (renamed Civil Aviation Authority (UK) years ago) now allows
                                               aircraft to fly around with no vestige of the current civil registration showing whatever.
                                               My, how times change!
