de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
This ex-RAAF Tiger (A17-147) was
exported directly to New Zealand after its service
were done (in 1950). It joined the fleet of Airspread Ltd
of Mount Maunganui as
a topdresser in 1951.
In 1957, whilst taking off from a field at Waihi it collided with
ZK-ALM. (Both machines were
taking off from at the same tim). As a result it was
cancelled from register and
reduced to spares on 9 May 1963.
