Museum of Flight, East Fortune
- De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
The de Havilland Tiger Moth first flew in 1931 and became the most successful training aircraft ever - a total of over 8,000 aircraft were built, many during the Second World War. It is viewed with affection by many pilots who first learned to fly in it. It says much for its survivability that many hundreds of Tiger Moths are still flying.
The Tiger Moth in the Museum of Flight, G-AOEL, was built for the RAF as N9510. In its civilian role, it was at one stage owned by the TV comedian Dick Emery.
