A ground up restoration by renowned master craftsman, the late Noel Otten.

This stunning Tiger Moth is originally a UK manufactured aircraft between 1939 & 1941(the exact date of manufacture is being established. This was kept secret as SAAF aircraft did not disclose year of manufacture during WW2) The aircraft has a total of one hour on the airframe and four hours on the engine since full restoration and is being offered with an Export CofA.  

A tail wheel conversion has been done to ease landing on hard runways. 

All AD’s are currently up to-date.

This has been a certified ground up nut and bolt restoration with no expense spared. 

English built, originally from the UK to South Africa during WW2.
