The culmination of many hours of hard work and dedication. This 1942 built DH82A Tiger Moth, EM-720 (G-AXAN) was finally ready to take to the air once more. Initially damaged in a landing accident at Sandtoft in 2008 the Morris Motors built Moth was restored to flight the following year. Shortly after take-off on it's post restoration flight the Moth suffered an engine problem and made a forced landing in a field, the aircraft suffered severe damage. G-AXAN has since undergone an extensive rebuild to return it to an airworthy condition.
