The Aircraft:

The Tiger Moth was a British designed bi-plane from the 1930’s. However Canadian modifications were made to make them more suitable for operation in Canadian climates. Operated by the RAF, it was the primary trainer in 1931 for WWII under the British Commonwealth Air Training Program (BCATP).

During the following fifteen years, the DH-82 was to become the foremost training airplane flown by the Commonwealth’s military and civilian pilots. The Tiger Moth was replaced by the de Havilland Chipmunk during the early 1950s.
