Tiger Moth is a red and yellow bi-plane who is reckless and daring. He flies high and low, doing tricks to show off, and is very rude indeed. He learnt his lesson after crashing into a haystack.
In the magazines, Tiger Moth has a face.
Tiger Moth is loosely based on a de Havilland Tiger Moth with a radial engine and tail resembling that of a Sopwith Camel. According to a recent SiF interview with Robert Gauld-Galliers, Tiger Moth is actually a Nieuport 17 Bi-Plane.
- The design on top of Tiger Moth's wings resembles the top half of the old Japanese flag.
- The red and yellow paint work resemebles the Tiger Moth model (and plane for the live action footage) in the "Thunderbirds" movie "Thunderbird 6", this makes sense as David Mitton worked for Gerry Anderson on the original programme and subsequent show Anderson created.
