Tiger Nine flies ‘100’ formation

The augmented Tiger Nine team’s magnificent 16-aircraft ‘100’ formation over Henlow on 12 May.

On the Saturday of the DH Moth Club’s private Moth Flying Forum held at RAF Henlow, Bedfordshire, on 12-13 May, the Tiger Nine display team flew a ‘100’ formation using 16 DH82A Tiger Moths in honour of the RAF centenary. With team leader Jeff Milsom in command, a number of ‘guest’ aircraft and pilots were added to the Tiger Nine’s regular line-up to create the spectacle. A 17th aeroplane was also airborne to act as a ‘whipper-in’. Ben Dunnell
