Travel Tuesday: Tiger Moth at Imperial War Museum Duxford

Category: Making Memories

As the Imperial War Museum Duxford is being featured on the BBC programme, The People Remember, all this week I thought I'd post a video of a de Havilland Tiger Moth which came in to land at Duxford when we were there in the summer.

A similar aircraft was featured on today's show when former 'Spitfire Girl' Joy Lofthouse reminisced about her service delivering fighter planes to the frontline and flew in a Tiger Moth at the age of 92, briefly taking the controls whilst in the air.

According to Harvey's grandad's surviving log book from the 1930's onwards, Cyril Ellen also flew in moths, primarily as a practice aircraft.
