ZK-AUP  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth            (c/n  DHNZ106)


                                                 Here's an aggie Tiger in its element.  Actually, in a field full of sheep.  Must've made for
                                                 some interesting landings, at times, I would suspect.   NZ1426 in the RNZAF, this air-
                                                 craft was allocated to the Wellington Aero Club in 1949 who did not use it, but sold it
                                                 on to Aerial Fertilising Co Ltd of Wellington. The aircraft was named "Holly" whilst
                                                 operating with the company, although my shot, despite its graininess does not seem to
                                                 show the name.    ZK-AUP was sold to Taranaki Aerial Services Ltd in 1956.  From
                                                 there it was exported to Fiji, becoming VQ-FAW.  It was operated by a company called
                                                 Air Viti Ltd and was withdrawn from use in 1960.
