Flight in a de Havilland Tiger Moth (D.H.82.C - Gipsy Major)

2,281 views 1 year ago
On September 9th, 2012 I was able to fly with a de Havilland Tiger Moth (to be precise a D.H.82.C - Gipsy Major with an 145 horsepower engine) at the Open Days of the Mannheim City-Airport.
I borrowed a GoPro from a friend so that I could film that flight. Luckily the pilot did not agree that I could attach the camera because so I was able to change the view at will.

The flight did cost me 90 Euro but it was worth every single Euro. Weather conditions were perfect (first and hopefully last sunburn in 2012 LOL) and we didn't crash like other people at a similar event the same weekend near Stuttgart.

Some details about the plane can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

I choose not to edit anything in this video out of two reasons first the lack of knowledge and second I wanted to keep it real from start to finish and not ruin anything.
I was a little bit surprised about that optical error with the propeller when I watched the final clip. But there is not much you can do here. Show less
