This is actually the second Tiger Moth to carry the rego VH-APE. This one was also built for the RAAF as A17-218. Post-war it was civilianised in 1947 as VH-BCS but was withdrawn from use in 1963. Restored, it was returned to the Register as VH-APE on 22 August 1987. Currently based in NSW, it was one of the aircraft in a vintage fly-past at the Wide Bay International Airshow.

After RAAF service, this fairly late-production Wirraway was bought back by CAC in March 1960 for possible conversion to a Ceres ag aircraft. This did not occur and in November 1963 the aircraft was sold for scrap. Rescued by Pearce Dunn, it was kept at his museum at Mildura between 1970 & 1982. Sold for restoration at Point Cook and then Caboolture, it made its first post-restoration flight at Caboolture on 8 July 1997. Still based at Caboolture but seen here at the Wide Bay International Airshow.
