Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth
Here's another of Robertson's top dressing Tigers with their
red and white
board rudders. This was the former G-AMTF. In the early
1990 it was restored at Mandeville
by the Croydon Aircraft Company for Mark
Zipfell who unfortunately crashed it in 1994,
necessitating yet another rebuild.
Following this it was returned it to the UK (circa 1995) resum-
ing its old identity of G-AMTF.
It was then sold to Peter Winters in Belgium who had it regis-
tered OO-TMW. Shortly after that it was acquired by New Zealand
ex-pat and current owner,
Hamish Monro. Hamish flew it
for a couple of years as OO-TMW (and provided me the photo
below of it wearing that rego along with its RAF
serial and in suitable 1940s camouflage). In
2007 it was returned to the UK
register as G-AMTF again. It is now based in East
Hamish is a great nephew of F.
Douglas Mill who was an original de Havilland agent
for New Zealand !
