              de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth 

de Havilland Tiger Moth byl britský dvoumístný cvičný dvouplošník, který byl vyvinut Geoffreyem de Havillandem v roce 1931 na základě staršího cvičného letounu de Havilland D.H.60. V roce 1932 vyvinul F. Halford vylepšenou verzi s motorem Gipsy Major pojmenovanou D.H.82A, kterou RAF zavedla do služby jako Tiger Moth II.

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type’s principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moths operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance and defensive anti-invasion preparations; some aircraft were even outfitted to function as armed light bombers.
