                                                 With a gaggle of other Tigers in the background it is a bit difficult to pick ZK-ARZ out of this
                                                 composition.    Ex NZ888, ZK-ARZ went to the Auckland Aero Club in 1948.  It was later
                                                 fitted with a canopy.   In 1951 it was sold to Aerial Agriculture Ltd of Hastings and converted
                                                 to a topdresser. It was withdrawn from use in 1956 and languished somewhere until 1990 when
                                                 it was resurrected by Croydon Aircraft Co Ltd of Gore. This machine is still currently airworthy
                                                 in New Zealand.  A contemporary image of it can be viewed at
