The DH 82 Tiger Moth bi-plane, designed by Geoffrey De Havilland, was operated primarily as a training aircraft. It lasted into the early 1950s in this role. Built between 1931 and 1944, they produced nearly 9000 and many survive today, flown by flying clubs and private owners around the world. Our Oxford release is just such an aircraft, a replica of that used by the De Havilland Flying Club. Decorated in red and silver grey, additional paintwork is in red,white and black. This delightful little bi-plane is exceptionally well detailed, with fine rigging, black cockpit interior, black air intakes and black tail skid, red wheel hubs, struts and propeller spinner with coloured tips. The white lettering along the sides of the fuselage identify the plane as G-ACDA The De Havilland School of Flying. It is a real little gem.
