Tiger Moth Walkaround Photos

I popped in to Tyabb and took this Tiger Moth walkaround in March 2008. The guys there at The Old Aeroplane Company were really friendly and let me take heaps of photos. Visitors are quite welcome so it is well worth a visit. They have flying examples of a P-51 Mustang, T-38 Trojan, this Tiger Moth VH-BVB, and several Harvards. There is also the only P-40K Merlin-engined Kittyhawk under restoration as well as a Vampire fighter.
