                                           ZK-AVP was an Australian built Tiger which served in the RNZAF as NZ1404.  It was originally
                                           registered ZK-ALQ with the South Canterbury Aero Club in 1947.  It crashed on 1 Oct 1949
                                           when it spun into the ground from 3000 feet.   The wreckage was purchased from the club in 1950
                                           by Airwork NZ Ltd who rebuilt it.   It then re-entered the register as ZK-AVP as a topdresser.
                                           Following another accident it was repaired and sold to Rural Aviation Ltd of New Plymouth in
                                           1953.  It crashed again near Maxwell on 26 January 1955 and was finally cancelled from the
                                           register the following year.   Incidently, the dark colored car in the backgound is a 1940 Austin
