A beautiful de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth

I had reason to drive back to Masterton airfield yesterday evening and while there, I got to see this beautiful de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth, ZK-ANL!

I think you'll see form the photos that this aircraft is in great condition, having been refurbished/ restored within the last 12 months or so, and is New Zealand's only spray-equipped Tiger [all of the spray gear was in a trailer].

Many thanks to Wayne for telling me a bit about the aircraft's history. I am trying to find a comprehensive web-based history of this machine, so if you know of one, please send me the link :-)
