Crop dusting in the 1950s

Two photographs taken at Armidale Airport in about 1959, at what we used to call an “air pageant”. Mount Duval can be made out in the background.

Not sure of the aircraft type – I was told at the time that it was a DH-60 Gypsy Moth (some of which were fitted with Genet radial engines), but I am not so sure.

Not a Gypsy Moth but an American built Stearman.They never made inroads into the Ag scene in Australia as there were too many surplus Tiger Moths available at a cheap price.
