The creation of the DH60 Moth in 1925 led to a family of light aeroplanes which continued to evolve until the very eve of World War II.
This new book outlines the early days of the de Havilland company and studies the evolution of each of the Moth variants and their engines, which took place between 1925 and 1939 - the first time that an amalgam of such detail has been drawn together into a single volume.
It features DH Co at Stag Lane Aerodrome; DH60 Moth; DH80 Puss Moth; DH82 Tiger Moth; DH83 Fox Moth; DH85 Leopard Moth; DH87 Hornet Moth; and, DH94 Moth Minor.
This is the first time that the whole family of de Havilland Moths have been covered in such detail in one volume.
Specially commissioned color photography shows each of the aircraft in huge detail.
The author is the most trusted and best-respected name in Moth circles.
He founded the De Havilland Moth Club and was heavily involved in the formation of de Havilland Support Ltd, which ensures the continued airworthiness of the worldwide fleet of de Havilland aircraft.
