DH82a Tiger Moth


The following is a list of what I believe to be the currently extant DH82a's in New Zealand - either flying, under restoration, in storage, or as a collection of components. If you are aware of any errors, ommissions, or corrections, please contact me with the information.

This list was last updated on March 5, 2000. In the 12 months from the previous update, 4 'ghosts' were eliminated from the list, 1 aircraft crashed, 1 aircraft was exported, and one was relisted under a new registration. Four aircraft were added to the list last time, and another four this time. That brings the total Tiger Moth survivors known to me in New Zealand to 98 aircraft.

Two further aircraft remain to be identified. One stored at Pongakawa is possible ZK-AJQ (c/n 502 exNZ1416). The other, in storage after being recovered from an attic in Marton along with two engines remains a mystery.
