Fly A Tiger Moth

History

This Tiger Moth G-AKUE was manufactured in Portugal in 1939, the aeroplane was flown to Mozambique then onto Northern Rhodesia where it was used for general transport, many aircraft had names, this one was known as Nokomis, Daughter of the Moon, but for the local Africans it was simply known as Big Bird. Eventually the aeroplane found its way back to England. The British registration was originally allocated to an Avro Tudor aircraft, a post war version of the Lancaster Bomber, as the registration was not taken up it was allocated to this Tiger Moth.

Location

The aircraft is operated at Redhill, Surrey, the original home of the Tiger Club, where much of the barnstorming, aerobatics, air racing and wing walking developments of the Tiger Moth during the 1950’s and 60’s took place.
