ZK-BEC  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth         (c/n   83626)


                                                 Previously T7167 and G-ANBT.  Imported into New Zealand in late 1953 for topdressing
                                                 duties. Unlike most topdressers, this aircraft (a) survived the ordeal and (b) was beautifully
                                                 restored to its former RAF glory as seen in the super contemporary photograph below by
                                                 Phillip Treweek.  This shot was taken at Whitianga Airstrip on January 29, 2000 with ZK-BEC
                                                 resplendent as T-7167.
