Tiger Moth ZK-BFF

"Foxy Lady" at Drury last weekend; another photograph from Andy Heap showing the De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth ZK-BFF , c/n 83564. This came to NZ following a career with the Royal Air Force and a very brief period on the UK civil register. It was first listed with Thames Aerial Top Dressing Co Ltd on 05-04-1954, gaining its C of A ten days later. After the end of its ag flying days it passed to the Piako Gliding Club in September of 1960, and then on to the Auckland Gliding Club as a source of spare parts. Its registration was cancelled on 31-03-1965. Withdrawn from storage it was restored by John Pheasant and was re- registered on 02-02-2005.
