Havilland D.H.82C Tiger Moth
This uncontrasty image is from the Jennifer Gradidge
collection. In fact, it's more like a puzzle:
"See if you can
pick out the Tiger on floats among the background of
forest.....". This was
formerly the RCAF's 4830 and was originally fitted with a Menasco
Pirate engine (Gipsy
Majors came into short supply during WW II). Whether or not this
had been switched out by
time this shot was taken is not known. Current owner
Paul Williams has kindly sent me a
shot of this old bird (below), sunning itself at Dunnville, Ont.
As Paul says:
"Looks a bit different now, doesn't it?"
