G-AAXJ  de Havilland D.H.80A Puss Moth                  (c/n 2006)


                                        By the late 1920s the affluent touring lightplane flyers of the day were demanding an aircraft with
                                        an enclosed cockpit.  de Havilland's answer was the Puss Moth.   To improve the pilot's view over
                                        the nose, the de Havilland Gipsy II engine was inverted.  The aircraft was designed for a pilot plus
                                        two passengers aft.  Entry was gained via two doors on the starboard side.  This early Puss Moth
                                        was exported in India in July 1931 (the month before I was born) becoming VT-ACZ.
