For my birthday, my kids paid for me to have a flight in this lovely old WW2 vintage trainer. The old girl is about the same age as I am!

What a lovely gift for your birthday to fly in this Vintage WW2 trainer, and the painting is tremendous too, well done Jack! 

Lovely air-born motion felt too from the Tiger Moth in the sky and such a good design too!

The actual flight was a couple of years ago, but my 70th comes up in a months time, so John, I'll happily accept your birthday greetings for then!  She is a lovely old bird and the flight was a joy.  I even flew her for a bit, taking her on a long slow turn. But the flight was over before you knew it.  Hey ho.  My Dad took his first flight in another type of Moth in the early 1930's.  All he wanted to do after that was join the RAF, which he did in 1935 aged 18 and served until 1945.
