What really caught my eye though was the following:
Mitchell does recall the trip to a farm in South Canterbury to purchase the Bradford. “We pulled up at the farm and collected the Bradford, and I remember that the owner had a lot of old vehicle parts and cars in varying states and the remains of what I think was a Tiger Moth fuselage,” he says.
The thought that crossed my mind is; are there readers out there who know from where the Bradford was located in South Canterbury (Rangitata Island perhaps?) and possibly know about the "Tiger Moth" or whatever it was. My reason for posting all this is that the Tiger Moth reference may lead us to a well known "Tiger Moth", or better still, lead us to one we didn't know still existed. Comments anyone?

I couldn't agree with you more Dave and that is why I blogged it as "Tiger Moth" rather than Tiger Moth. Then again, if someone does know the story about the Ute then we may be onto something very interesting.
