de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
This Tiger was one of those
wherein the RNZAF serial (NZ1466) closely resembled the c/n.
Anyway, this aircraft went to the Gisborne
Aero Club in 1949. It is seen in their employ in
the shot above. It was sold to Fieldair Ltd in 1952
for use as a topdresser, and withdrawn
from use at Gisborne in
1957. Parts of it were used in the rebuild of ZK-ASQ.
Despite this it
has been reported to be in the process of being
restored in Moth Major configuration but this
project may have been
abandoned. Possibly still stored in the Auckland area.
