Withdrawn from use in 1968. Remained dismantled and stored until 1997 when it became subject of a restoration project. Shipped to New Zealand in 2014 for rebuilding. Registered ZK-UVC in 2016 and flown for first time in 50 years in November 2017. Will be shipped back to its owner Australia.
VH-UMO was registered in 1929 as a Moth Coupe with a Gipsy I engine. Whether it did have an enclosed cockpit when it arrived in Australia is not known but by 1946 did have open cockpits. In this 1964 photo it has an "inverted" Gipsy III engine as fitted to Tiger Moths. -UMO crashed in September 1965 and was removed from the register. It returned in 1993 but with no recent photos, it may be a project and not an active aircraft. Its engine is listed as a Gipsy II, which is not inverted.
