The venerable Tiger Moth is one of the most iconic and well-loved vintage biplanes still in service in the UK. Originally appointed for use as RAF primary trainers during the WWII period, Tiger Moths are still used today for nostalgic open-cockpit pleasure flights and pilot training.
The UK-registered aircraft featured in this image, G-ACDC and G-ASKP, first entered service in 1933 and 1935 respectively. They have each flown many thousands of hours in total on a wide variety of military and civilian sorties. Both aircraft are currently based at Damyns Hall Aerodrome in Essex, England and are operated by The Tiger Club.
