I remember when.

Ah De Havilland !
De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth ZK-AZY , c/n 83557 , seen at Taieri in early 1967.
This Tiger came to NZ post WW11 after serving with the RAF as T5845 and then as G-AMFW on the UK civil register. It was registered in NZ on 07-08-1952 to Wanganui Aero Work Garnham Aviation of Taihape. It was withdrawn from ag work sometime in 1956 and converted to a two seat "coupe" for W B Easton by Airepairs towards the end of 1958. It later spent time with the Southern Hawkes Bay Aero Club, Airwork (NZ) Ltd, the Otago Gliding Club and finally with Tom Grant, Dudley Waters and A J L McDonald.
Later in 1967 (12th of November I think) it overturned at Taieri and was cancelled on 19-09-1968.
