A flight in a Tiger Moth was the present my brother’s daughters gave him for his 80th birthday. The flight was booked for last Sunday, and after several days of anxiety about the weather, it turned out warm and sunny all day. So the flight was followed by a family picnic (14 people of all ages) on the grass at Headcorn aerodrome in Kent.
The atmosphere at the little aerodrome is totally informal, with not an official in sight all day, other than three staff members of Aero Legends, the company that runs the flights. Car parking all day in a large and well kept grass field was free.
I had the impression that many of those present were aircraft enthusiasts enjoying a free day watching and photographing light planes taking off and landing. At one point the pilot of a more modern biplane gave us an impressive display of aerobatics.
My brother Biggles thoroughly enjoyed his flight!
