Photo Comment

This lovely Hornet Moth was added to the UK Register pre-war as G-AEZG but was impressed into the RAF during the war as BK830. A survivor, it resumed its identity as G-AEZG until being exported to Australia where it became VH-UXY(2) on 27 July 1979. Seen here arriving at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Spring Fly-in.
