ABOUT TIGER MOTHS
  IN BRIEF  
     
 

The prototype DH82 Tiger Moth first flew in October 1931 with some early production models being bought by civilian owners. However the majority of Tiger Moths were employed with the RAF or with the Elementary and reserve flying schools. The Tiger Moth is a development of the earlier DH60G Gipsy Moth, it was strengthened for service use, fitted with an inverted (rather then upright) engine for improved forward view and the wings were staggered to allow easier exit from the cockpit by parachute. After serving for a while, the DH82 Tiger Moth was modified with the Gipsy Major engine instead of the Gipsy III and plywood instead of fabric covered top fuselage decking, these modifications led to the Tiger Moth being designated the DH82a.
