My Twin Brother Geoffrey has just looked at his Logbook and flew the Jackeroo based at Cardiff Airport on 5/12/59 on a Local Flight . The Aircaft was G-APJV and belonged to the Glamorgan Flying Club , he usually flew the the Tiger Moth G-AOUY based there . He did a 2 week Course of Instruction at the Wiltshire School of Flying , Thruxton to cram the Flying hours into his 2 Week Annual Holiday from the Guest Keen Steelworks , Cardiff .

I live about 20km from the Guelph airpark where this Moth lives. I have several photo taken during the "Tiger Boys" annual flyin and fundraiser. Guelph reportedly has the world's largest collection to Moths. They have an ongoing restoration program for these aircraft. There are several flying examples on site. Each year, during their fundraiser, they take paying passengers up for a flight around the city...landings are done on their grass field...beautiful.
Thanks for posting this pic Dave. Cheers.
PS...I'm told this is one of only two left flying.

Dan Drimmie: I enjoyed reading your message and I thank you very much. Guelph airpark is certainly a treasure and I am happy that you are helping to spread the word. Those annual Tiger Moth fly-ins are just awesome... perhaps our paths will cross at the next one. Sadly, the founder of those fly-ins, Tom Dietrich, passed away just a few days ago. I was talking with his partner, Bob Revell, and he plans to hold the next fly-in in Tom's memory. Best regards, Dave
