With World War II training aircraft and the first all-metal plane to ever fly into Australia, this unique garage is filled with history. Proud owner Ross Smith said his passion for planes had been inspired by his father, who was in the Royal Air Force. After being taken for his first ride at 16 years old, he said he had never looked back. "The following weekend I was at Bundaberg learning to fly," Mr Smith said. His interest in restoring old planes came later, when he bought his first Tiger Moth in about 1986. "I thought I'd love to have a Tiger Moth and I went looking for one, and finally found one in pieces in Victoria and started restoring it," he said. "And it just sort of grew from that." Ross has a number of planes including a 1947 Tiger Moth and a 1941 Boeing Stearman Kaydet & Lockheed Electra Junior. See the article for photos and more.
