I have received some interesting photographs from Des Smith taken in the early 1960's. I will drip feed them as time permits.
The history of Druine D.31 Turbulent was pretty well covered by Sir Minty in an earlier posting at :-Photo by E Hales. In the background is the Miles Whitney Straight ZK-AXD and the HB and ECAC Tiger Moth ZK-ANP.
ZK-BWE was damaged on 03-01-1963 by another pilot after engine problems at Waiohiki. I seem to recall that the fuel cap vent was blocked. As can be seen below the wing was badly damaged.
