'Silver Lady' is actually the second Tiger Moth to carry the rego VH-SSB. It was built to an RAAF order as A17-592 and after the war was civilianised as VH-BBD. In 1958 it was acquired by Super Spread and converted to a cropduster (imagine that!). In 1963 it was re-registered in 'their' block as VH-SSB, replacing an earlier one. Currently restored and maintained in excellent condition by De Havilland collector Ken Orrman at Shep. Lovely!
