TIGER MOTH: A TRIBUTE., McKay, Stuart.

Author Name    McKay, Stuart.

Title   TIGER MOTH: A TRIBUTE.

Publisher    Orion, New York, 1988.

Seller ID   24569

160 pp, small 4to (10 13/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0517568640 Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w photographs. "A pictorial history of one of the world's greatest airplanes. Great not only in terms of numbers built and surviv ing, but in the affection generated by this amalgam of wood, wire and tube which has been responsible for training unknown thousands of airmen during more than half a century of uninterrupted operations. The Tiger Moth was born from the neces s i t y t o continue development of de Havilland's ubiquitous Moth family. Legends surrounding the development of the first DH82 have been embellished with the passage of time. In a Stag Lane shed, stagger and sweep were said to have ben determin ed b y pe n ci l calculations on the proverbial envelope while DH60G rear spars were shorteded with a handsaw. Following taxi trials, lower mainplane dihedral was added, adjusted to the length of the grass. The Tiger Moth has been privy to fifty yea rs of av ia tio n development. During her operational life she has seen wooden biplane airliners evolve into stainless steel projectiles carrying passengers faster than a rifle bullet. The Tiger Moth was conceived as a training aircraft, a ro le t o w hic h sh e w as a nd continues to be admirably suited, but as the photographs in this book illustrate, she has been adapted to almost every aviation situation possible to imagine. The aim (of this book) has been to present a balanced revie w of the life and time s of the Tiger Moth, from the early thirties to the present day, with a hint of the future added for good measure." Heavy creasing at top of spine. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, ligh t ru bbing , sli ght b rowni ng a top edge of flaps. Very Good/Very Good
