During the 1920s and early Thirties, de Havilland produced a family Moth biplanes, which were aimed at the private sector to fly for pleasure. However, the most successful member of the family was the Tiger Moth, due to its role as a trainer in the RAF. The DH60X pictured holds a record: built in 1928 and bought by Richard Shuttleworth in 1932, this aircraft has been based continuously at Old Warden ever since, the longest time in aviation history.
