T6818 (registerd as G-ANKT) is a composite aircraft, being
built from the components from three Tiger Moths, but the
majority of the aircraft is from G-ANKT – the registration
it still holds and originally serialled T6818. T6818 was
built under license by Morris Motors Ltd at Cowley, Oxford
in 1940. It entered service with the RAF, but little of
its service life is known.
It was acquired by the Shuttleworth Collection, along
with the remains of the other Tiger Moths, in 1966. Two
former engineering apprentices at Old Warden carried out
the restoration and it first flew again in October 1977.
G-ANKT is Flying on a regular basis from Old Warden
and is operated to carry out trial lessons and air displays.
It remains part of the unique Shuttleworth Collection amongs
other aircraft ranging from Bleriot 1909 monoplan to WW2
