Experience Details

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 it's taking place at Duxford an airfield which oozes aviation heritage and is home to the Imperial War Museum, for which you get tickets included in your gift pack, a visit to Duxford is a day out in itself so leave plenty of time to look around.
