The de Havilland DH 82 Tiger Moth was a 1930s biplane designed by de Havilland and operated by the Royal Air Force and others as a primary trainer. The Tiger Moth remained in service with the RAF until 1952 when many of the surplus aircraft entered civil operation. Many other nations used the Tiger Moth both in military and civil applications and the ubiquitous little trainer still is in great demand worldwide as a recreational aircraft. Design and development The Tiger Moth trainer prototype was derived from the de Havilland Gipsy Moth (DH 60). The main change to the DH Moth series was necessitated by an effort to improve access to the front cockpit since the training requirement specified that the front seat occupant had to be able to escape easily, even wearing a parachute. Access to the front cockpit of the Moth predecessors was restricted by the proximity of the aircraft’s fuel tank directly above the front cockpit and the rear support struts for the upper wing. The solution adopted was to shift the upper wing forward but sweep the wings back to maintain the centre of lift. Other changes included a strengthened structure, fold-down doors on both sides of the cockpit and a revised exhaust. It was powered by a de Havilland Gipsy III 120 hp engine and first flew on 26 October 1931 with de Havilland Chief Test Pilot Hubert Broad at the controls.[4] One distinctive characteristic of the Tiger Moth design is its differential aileron control setup.

    I was lucky enough to go up in a Tiger Moth in 2007. I can vouch for the controls being very sensitive. I took the stick and the slightest pressure had the aircraft changing course. I soon handed back to the pilot! The experience was terrific, starting off with great excitment and enthusiasm, until levelling out after take-off when I realized just how flimsy the thing was. This soon changed into enjoying the flight and the terrific views. I ended up wishing we could have stayed up longer.

    You are so smart bomberguy. I am a plane fanatic like you. (imma guy, not a girl) and if you think I know nothing, I know the largest load ever carried by Boeing was about 1 million pounds. That’s a lot of weight. It was carried by the 747-8 intercontinental.

    At 1:14 the narrator has the throttle «open / shut» the wrong way round.

    «This concludes your ground school instruction. You will now get into your aeroplane and begin the flying segment. Good luck.»
    (Okay, maybe that was more WWI style instruction.) 😎

    Last Saturday I watched a freshly-restored example of these beautiful machines doing circuits and bumps from a farm in Norfolk. It was found in a barn last year, covered in dust and guano; now it’s as-new and glorious. The owner said he’d take me up when he’s more used to it. It’ll be my first open-cockpit flight; I can’t wait!

    Definitely a Tiger Moth on the outside, but the instrument panel is labelled as a Moth Major, a slightly earlier Moth with a wooden fuselage and unstaggered wings. On the G- info website from the CAA ‘ACSK is listed as a Tiger from new in 1934, so maybe the inside shots are of a different a/c or the panel was transplanted? Anorak off now, I just love these old films, keep up the good work!.

    Ed, thank you for a fascinating couple of hours today spent looking through your phenomenal archive of aviation film.
    Much intriguing and amazing stuff!

    And doesn’t this great old clip make flying look easy? =D

    I was actually hoping I might find at long last a film called «Two in a Tiger» — a training film (possibly for the RAF?) about learning to fly a DeHavilland Tiger Moth.
    Is that something you’ve ever heard of, Ed?
    All the best — and thanks for all your fascinating uploaded videos.
