VH-BLW de Havilland
D.H.82A Tiuger Moth
I am not enamored about presenting photos such as
this. However, if it is the only record available
of a particular
auircraft....... Anyway, here are the remains of -BLW following a crash
at Bruce Rock,
WA on 27 August 1959.
As Geoff Goodall, from whose collection this shot comes, says, you'll
have to take his word for it!
The machine was owned at the time by Aero Service Pty Ltd,
and that titling is
visible on the fuselage. The Tiger struck the ground during a
low turn while spraying
wild turnips near Bruce Rock
and crahsed into trees. The pilot was not wearing his crash helmet but
away from the wreck uninjured..
