Very British, iconic and elegant!

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the RAF and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type’s principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moth operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance, defensive anti-invasion preparations, and even some aircraft that had been outfitted to function as armed light bombers.

The Tiger Moth remained in service with the RAF until it was succeeded during the early 1950s. Many of the military surplus aircraft subsequently entered into civil operation. Many nations have used the Tiger Moth in both military and civil applications, and it remains in widespread use as a recreational aircraft in several different countries.

The Tiger Moth has been used in many productions, the most famous of which might be “Out of Africa” (It was actually a Gypsy Moth but I’m going geeky on you). It remains however, THE bit of Aerial Co-ordination I would have most liked to have done so I’ve selfishly attached a copy.

We’ve used them numerous times, the loveliest of which was for “The Crown”. Our intrepid pilot actually switched the engine off and glided to a landing. We made him do it 5 times I think!

Lots of aircraft available in all sorts of military and civilian schemes, just give us a call!

3/3 Although they did not hit the German aircraft, its pilot appears to have panicked and landed without his undercarriage locked down. In the crash landing the fuselage was badly damaged and the pilot severely injured. The other occupant received only slight injuries.' https://t.co/bzAJQFMqWj

2/3 Crossing the coast they fired very cartridges which they hoped would indicate that they had no hostile intentions.They continued their flight to RNAS Ford where they were chased by a Mosquito and two or three Hawker Typhoons. The RAF aircraft opened fire. https://t.co/07s2YqbKl7

1/3 - Bf108 “F8-CA” of Stab/KG40. Two members of the Luftwaffe decided to desert and stole this aircraft at Châteaudun, taking off at 06.00 on 11 September, 1943, to fly to England. Flying at 3,000 ft, they headed for Selsey Bill, the nearest point on the English coast. https://t.co/qcKkmm84eR

Getting ready for codes and nose art on the Bf108. Anyone recognise it? Quite a story.. #bf108 #me108 #avgeeks https://t.co/U5GvTrF7Kv

OK, so lets bust the COVID quiet by running up our new B17 engine. Obviously VFR only, and despite the unusual undercarriage arrangement I guess it still qualifies as a taildragger. What could go wrong... #b17 #avgeeks https://t.co/8HkPWuYaYD
