About the de Havilland Tiger Moth
- The Tiger Moth is one of Britain’s most iconic and popular planes. Created in the 1930’s and used by the RAF right up until 1952, the Tiger Moth had a vital role to play in World War II where thousands of pilots received training at the lever of this aircraft. Up to 350 Tiger Moth planes were fitted with bomb racks in order to be used to help fight during the war. The two-seater plane could reach speeds of up to 109mph and most Commonwealth countries have, at one stage or another, used the Tiger Moth as an integral part of military preparation and reconnaissance. The Tiger Moth had a huge part to play in Britain’s history and a chance for a ride in this historic monument should not be missed.
