Tiger Moth Experience at Duxford
Take a flight from the ex-Royal Air Force base of Duxford, which was active during the Second World War, in a training aircraft designed by de Havilland. These Tiger Moth flights at Duxford allow
you to experience flying from a bygone era in these iconic bi-planes. Also included in the price is entry to the Imperial War Museum.
de Havilland designed the Tiger Moth as a pilot training aircraft and this is reflected in the bright yellow livery of DF112 Tiger Moth at Duxford which are typical trainer aircraft
colours. The plane was demobbed in 1954 and re-registered as G-ANRM. After being initially based in Cambridge the plane had a long civilian history before returning 'home' to
Cambridgeshire at Duxford.
The other Tiger Moth at Duxford is the rather younger R4922 built in 1940. She served faithfully as a Second World War fighter pilot trainer right through until 1945. Now looking
resplendent in post-war silver colours, G-APAO as she is registered today, still has the yellow bands marking her trainer plane pedigree.
Whether you choose a 15 minute taster or a 30 minute flight, you will absolutely love being in these nostalgic, open cockpit vintage biplanes - and you'll also love the fact that
