Well trav­elled Tiger

Pilot - - NEW REGS -

An­other air­craft com­plet­ing a cir­cuitous re­turn to its birth­place is Tiger Moth G-ANJI. As T6830, this 74-year-old taught a gen­er­a­tion of RAF pi­lots to fly, be­fore be­ing part of the 1953 A J Whit­te­more bulk pur­chase. Even­tu­ally, it was bought by a French fly­ing club at Pau, which flew it for six­teen years be­fore sell­ing it to en­thu­si­asts based at Fort Laud­erdale, Florida. After an­other twenty years it mi­grated to Canada, and has now joined David Shew’s col­lec­tion of five Tigers, all on the ac­tive reg­is­ter but none with a cur­rent per­mit to fly.
